Why Do Certain Jewellers Badmouth Palladium?
The usual suspects… ignorance, spite and high blood-alcohol levels.
Jokes aside, there seems to be some bizarre occasional badmouthing of palladium in South Africa by certain jewellers. It’s completely unfounded and I’d like to share my thoughts on it.
Very few products can be recommend blindly without reservation to a broad audience. Preferences, requirements and expectations vary widely from person to person, and situation to situation. Just as strongly as I would advise a severely dehydrated person to rather opt for gulp of fresh water over sipping molten lava, I would urge anyone to choose palladium over white gold for jewellery use whenever possible.
