Ever heard of palladium? It is a rare and lustrous silvery-white metal that is a member of a group of metals called “Noble Metals.” It earned that distinction, because it can withstand corrosion and oxidation. It is also hypoallergenic, will not tarnish, and is extremely durable. Most important, it is crazy shiny and makes a piece of jewelry really stand out!
Platinum is the rarest and heaviest of the precious metals. According to some sources, all of the platinum ever mined would fit in the average size living room. Like all the metals in my work, any platinum I use has been previously mined. Fun fact: The world’s famous diamonds, including the Hope, Jonker I and Koh-I-Noor, are secured by platinum.
