We use the European standard for white gold which is made with palladium rather than nickel. Nickel white gold is used pretty much everywhere in North America. Nickel white gold is typically plated which rhodium to give it a bright white colour but this wears off over time. And this creates a wear an unnecessary wear item for your jewellery.
Our palladium white gold is nickel-free and not plated. It doesn't need to be. Palladium white gold has warmth in it's colour that belies the harsh whiteness of rhodium plating.
Our Fairmined palladium white gold is made in Paris, France; our Fairtrade gold is made in the United Kingdom. Fairtrade & Fairmined gold is sourced from certified mines in Peru, Bolivia and more recently Africa. Your ring will be made either Fairmined or Fairtrade gold depending upon current stocks. Your ring will bear the appropriate Fairtrade (below, left) or Fairmined (below, right) certification stamp.
