Palladium, a white metal with the appearance of white gold or platinum, resists tarnish and wear. With a price comparable to 14k white gold, palladium is an affordable alternative to platinum. Palladium is hypoallergenic, making it ideal for those sensitive to other metal jewelry. Clean palladium jewelry regularly with prepackaged jewelry cleaner or soap and water to keep it bright and shining.
Fill a small container with 1/2 tsp. of mild dish soap and warm water. Place the palladium jewelry in the solution. If you're using the pre-packaged jewelry cleaner, place the jewelry into the solution. Allow it to soak for five minutes.
Remove the jewelry from the soap or cleaner and brush it with a small brush or wipe it with a soft cloth.
Rinse the palladium jewelry in cool water.
Dry the palladium jewelry with a soft cloth.
