Palladium Plating Pricing Guide

Palladium Plating Pricing Guide
Palladium (Pd)

Palladium is utilized as a lower cost alternative to rhodium plating. It is characterized by its “white gray” appearance. Though not as tarnish resistant as platinum or rhodium, palladium resists discoloring and is quite stable under most environmental conditions.

Used primarily over sterling silver and gold items, palladium can also be plated onto a wide variety of other metal materials (i.e. steel bronze, brass). It has exceptional resistance to scratching and incidental abrasions.

From a decorative standpoint, palladium is an excellent alternative to bright nickel-plated finishes, and can be used as an undercoat for gold vermeil jewelry. If you are skin sensitive to nickel finishes, palladium finishes are a good alternative.

All items that we plate are meticulously cleaned and plated with a .20 micron layer of palladium.

Below are our pricing rates that will give you an idea of the basic costs and affordability for many of the most frequently plated items.

Due to the volatility for the costs of palladium the pricing data can only serve as a general guide. We will be happy to provide you with a firm price once we have a chance to view the item.
