by peperomia » Jul 14, 2019 I'm looking for vendors that carries 14k white gold men's wedding band that is alloyed with palladium, instead of nickel. Does anyone know where they can be found? Also, local jewelry store rep told me white gold/palladium alloy is only good in 18k as 14k does not combine well or something and is not a good mix. Is that true at all? It is my understanding that 14k are more durable than 18k and also when I saw the pictures of unplated white gold, the 14k/palladium mix was more whiter than the 18k/palladium mix. I figure the rhodium plating will wear off eventually, but at least the 14k will stay whiter longer. Am I correct in thinking that or is the difference so negligible that it doesn't matter?
