The damascene process etches arabesque or geometric designs into steel and then inlays gold or silver wire until the gold (or silver) has penetrated into the cuts so as to finish the intricate design. The damascene jewellery piece is then 'blued' to produce a black background by oxidation of the surfaces which are not damascened.
These jewellery pieces are something special and of the highest quality, made by artisans employing age-old techniques that date back centuries. Gift one of these special necklaces to a friend or loved-one to pass on your best wishes and make them feel appreciated.
