What is Palladium:
The sleek, silvery-white sheen of this element renders it increasingly popular as an alternative to Platinum. The English scientist, Dr. William Hyde Wollaston first distinguished it as a unique metal apart from Platinum in 1803. Impressed with its beauty and hardness, he named Palladium after the recently discovered asteroid Pallas, a heavenly object detected during the previous year.
Marketed today in luxury items as “Palladium” or “paladium”, this shiny metal gives a distinctive, beautiful quality to metallic surfaces. It has rapidly gained popularity in the fashion industry as a component of high quality jewelry, watches, and accessories due to its hardness and attractive, scratch-resistant properties. When you wear a wristwatch covered in this distinctive alloy, you won’t need to worry that exposure to an active lifestyle will leave scratches or dents on the surface easily.
Upscale watch makers have discovered several advantages in the use of Palladium. It will retain a shiny luster, even under environmental conditions in which Gold or Platinum grow slightly dull. For this reason, some manufacturers use this material as a component in watch cases and, sometimes, dials and other moving parts. It works very well for customers who easily experience allergies wearing some other metals, too.
Typical examples of the use of this lovely metal alloy appear in fine time pieces from Cartier, Tiffany and Vacheron Constantin. The ability to retain a vibrant exterior contributes to the overall quality of designer timepieces comprised of this silvery-white metal.
