A lustrous silver-white metal, Palladium resembles platinum and is in the platinum group of metals. It can be used to make white gold alloys, or used on its own for jewelry. Palladium gained popularity in jewelry during times when gold and platinum were scarce and rising in price. Palladium was viewed as a lower cost alternative.
Unlike white gold, Palladium is hypo-allergenic, and tarnish resistant (white gold needs to be treated every few years to keep it from returning to a yellow gold color). Palladium is about the same price as white gold but about 1/5th the price of platinum. It is also much lighter weight than platinum, while also significantly harder, and therefore more durable, standing the test of time with fewer signs of wear.
