MARKINGS / HISTORY - Inside of ring band is engraved "N.K. - R. L. Oct. 21st 50." Inside of ring band is also stamped "Palladium". Palladium is a relatively new metal, only having been discovered in 1803! Until the 30s, platinum and white gold were the popular metal colors of choice, but during WWII, platinum was reserved for military use in the U.S. This led to the rise in popularity for yellow gold since white colored metals were not as readily available. Palladium then became popular for those who still preferred white metal over yellow! Like platinum, palladium is hypoallergenic making it perfect for individuals with metal allergies. Palladium is more resistant to scratching than platinum, and has roughly the same weight as gold!
