When we discuss terms, context is king. If you ask a chemist which metals are noble he will not include any metal that acts as a catalyst. If you ask a jeweler or a precious metals expert, they might include platinum, and palladium as "noble" because they will not tarnish in air. As we see above hypo allergenic means "decreased tendency" to create a reaction. To date white gold has reliably been implicated in nickel allergic reactions. Despite long searches on the internet, we have no evidence for any 950 Palladium causing any allergic reactions at all. In theory its possible. In fact it's yet to be proven. Every 950 Palladium is far and away less likely to cause any allergic reaction than any nickel white gold.
Palladium and platinum are both worn globally by countless numbers of people, and neither is any allergic threat of concern
We have truly historic news for Palladium jewelry.The Assay Offices of Great Britain have issued their regulations for hallmarking Palladium. Voluntary now, and obligatory as of 2010- the approved marks are 999, 950, and surprisingly 500! That is something I'll be looking into and posting soonest. Our sincere thanks to The Assay Offices for this history making step. Keeping the Great in Great Britain. Link to the document http://www.assayofficescotland.com/Palladium_Guidance_Notes.pdf

To my great regret the economy of the commodities crash has ended PAI. Very low prices for palladium , under $200per ounce in 2008 and 2009 were too much to overcome. I'd like to thank all who worked so hard. Now it will be up to us, those whom have brought the metal into fruition to continue. We have a great metal, and the public is buying into items of extra value. Hey, platinum family, naturally white and far less costly than 14k white gold.
Many advise keeping one's personal and professional lives separated. I guess I missed the memo. My work in metals and the promotion and sales of same have put me on the web openly for quite some time now. Most of that is at pmwest.us
But taking my own photography skills from home to work is just one side of things. I have Ballard Light Capture, my company that offers photography, video, editing and other related services for hire.
