Soldering 14kt white gold/palladium

I have been working more with 14kt white gold /palladium and I love the ‘workability’ of it but am having a hard time choosing the perfect solder. It has to be something that can be used to re-tip on a diamond and needs to color match for sizing or general repairs. I have tried 20kt white;plumb;weld which blends perfectly with platinum but doesn’t color match this grayer metal. Advice?

DHF offers a 14kt Palladium white solder that flows @ 1370F. You may also use a 1000 or 1100 pt solder, these typically do not have platinum but are palladium based solders. The 1000/1100 represents the melting points in Celsius.
Hope this helps.
