18k palladium white gold, like all varieties of 18k gold, is 75.2% pure gold. Unlike regular 18k white gold, it does not contain any nickel, so is suitable for those with allergies to nickel. It also contains some palladium (a precious metal akin to platinum) to provide a superior, longer-lasting white color over time without rhodium plating.
The fourth listing photo shows this ring with one possible matching wedding band design (not included in this listing price); there are many options available for a coordinating wedding band; please convo me for details. I've created this engagement ring with a bezel that sits on top of the band to allow it to stack nicely next to a wedding band; if you plan to wear it alone, I'd be happy to sink the bezel down into the band; just let me know your preference.
Please let me know what size you need when you place your order, and allow three to four weeks for fabrication of this custom-made piece.
This design is also available in other metals. I can also make it with a different sized stone - whatever your heart desires, let's chat. :-)
If you're not familiar with moissanite, please read on to discover more about this amazing material...
Moissanite was originally born from a meteorite over 50,000 years ago, and was first discovered by Dr. Henri Moissan in 1893 in material collected from a meteor crater in Arizona. These incredibly brilliant sparkling crystals might have been considered "diamonds from space," but Dr. Moissan's research actually identified them as a new mineral find - silcon carbide, whose chemical composition is SiC (diamonds are made from carbon). This stunning jewel is extremely rare, and almost impossible to find in nature. So rare, in fact, that the dream of using it in jewelry was an impossibility until man discovered a way to create and craft these incredible silicon carbide crystals here on Earth.
With more fire than any popular gemstone (including diamond), no other stone or jewel compares to Moissanite. In fact, fire can be measured scientifically and moissanite has nearly 2.4 times the fire of diamond. Moissanite also has 10% more brilliance and luster than diamond. Proven to be harder than ruby, sapphire or emerald and second only to diamond, moissanite is also extraordinarily heat resistant, durable, and tough. It is extremely resistant to scratching, abrasion, breaking and chipping. And because these phenomenal stones are grown in a laboratory, you don't have to worry about the ethical problems involved with harvesting diamonds and other mined gems.
This design uses a Forever Brilliant stone, the very best of all the moissanites. In creating the FOREVER BRILLIANT™ gem, Charles & Colvard hand selects and expertly polishes only the world’s finest moissanite. Then, through a proprietary process using extraordinary, cutting edge twenty-first century technology, each gemstone is transformed to a higher standard of the Gemological Institute of America’s near-colorless spectrum, up to four color grades whiter than standard moissanite.
Dr. Suneeta Neogi at Serenity Technologies, Inc., developed a radically different proprietary process of whitening moissanite that absolutely improves the color and brilliance of moissanite without any residual negative effects potentially seen with HTHP treatments. This exclusive partnership between Charles & Colvard and Serenity brings the best opportunity for consumers worldwide to experience FOREVER BRILLIANT™, the whitest and brightest created moissanite gemstones, with confidence, knowing that it is brought to the market directly from and guaranteed by the sole manufacturer of created moissanite gems.
FOREVER BRILLIANT™ gemstones carry the same Limited Lifetime Warranty as all other Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite® gemstones for maintaining their optical property of brilliance.
Complimentary FedEx 2-Day shipping within the United States is included with this listing at no charge. I do offer international shipping; if you live outside the US, please contact me for a quote specific to your location. Due to the lack of availability of insurance through the US postal service for international packages, I use FedEx when shipping overseas; this is a more expensive but far safer option. International buyers, please be aware that you are solely responsible for any duties/taxes that your country may charge on imported goods.
If you would like to make two payments (50% now and 50% upon completion), please note your preference in the 'notes to seller' field and select 'other' as your payment method.

As is all my jewelry, this piece is vegan, meaning no animal products (pearls, silk, leather, etc.) were used in its construction.
