I know it’s possible to heat harden silver and gold alloys… does
anyone have a process for palladium white gold?
I have ordered 14k and 18k palladium white from:
They seem to be good people. The 14k is just about the same cost as
the 18k (as it has a higher palladium content), and is whiter. I
figured I would get both and experiment.
My ongoing concern with this metal is going to be its hardness. I
make tension rings every now and then, and would like to examine the
use of this metal for those purposes. McCreight has some temperatures
for heat hardening silver and gold alloys, but nothing specified for
I was wondering what the collective knowledge was…
