1940s Palladium Wedding BandSize 6.5


Palladium, member of the distinguished group of noble metals, was discovered in 1802 by William Hyde Wollaston. Wollaston named the precious metal for the asteroid "Pallas" that appeared in the early summer of the same year. These days palladium is most commonly used in jewelry as an alloy in white gold, however, during the second World War the use of platinum was widely restricted and palladium - with its natural white color - was used in its stead. The band is pictured in the center of the stack.
