Are you referring to a white gold alloy that contains NEITHER
palladium NOR nickel? If so, the element in question is likely
manganese. Precious Metals West offers such a white gold alloy. I
understand it takes some pretty delicate handling to make it work
successfully. For more on this particular alloy, I
suggest contacting Daniel Ballard from PM West 1-800-999-7528, web
For more on white gold alloys of all types, AJM ran an article on
this subject in March 2002 by Stewart Grice, mill products director
for Hoover & Strong. You can get a copy of the article by calling
800-444-MJSA or visiting the web site at http://www.ajm-magazine.com.
There is a charge for copies for non-MJSA members.
Hope that helps!
