Palladium was discovered by William Hyde Wollaston in 1803 and has been used as a precious metal in jewellery since 1939. As recently as 2001, palladium was more expensive than platinum and rarely used in jewellery due to the issue of casting - the technology to efficiently cast palladium as jewellery did not exist then. Palladium is extremely difficult to cast well because it is a veritable oxygen sponge when molten; it therefore requires a very controlled melting environment. However, the casting problem has been solved and its use in jewellery has increased because of a large increase in the price of platinum and a drop in the price of palladium.
Now, there's two things you've got to know about this. First, the carat for a diamond, or for gold, is not the same thing. So for example, for gold karat is written with a \"K\" and the value of the karat isn't the same as for the diamond. And the second this is make sure you don't fall for the carat total weight scam. This is basically where they say this amazing ring is three carats, and you go oh, this is a huge diamond but it's actually a scam because the three carats is the weight of the whole ring including the setting and the band - not only the diamond.
It is also traditional to give someone a promise ring with small stones. Birthstones are very popular choices, but you can also leave this decision up to your imagination. Rubies can represent the red fire love that you feel towards your partner. Sapphires can symbolize that you always will be true blue towards your mate. Emeralds can correspond with how your special someone makes you feel rich and prosperous, despite the fact that you may not be rich by some people's standards. Giving promise rings to each other makes a bold statement to your friends and family letting them know that you are seriously in love. More importantly, it tells the recipient that you are dedicated to them and appreciate where you are in the relationship.
