Size: 21mm x 18mm Weight: 2 grams Mounting: Damascene Base Metal Period: Contemporary Inventory Number: 1264
Damascene jewelry is made by inlaying different metals into one another. 18k or 24k yellow or rose gold and/or silver is inlaid into a darkly oxidized steel background to produce intricate patterns.
We guarantee our buyers are getting authentic Damascene pieces. We periodically acid test the gold and silver content of the Damascene pieces we buy and sell to verify they are inlaid with 18k/24k gold and/or silver precious metals. Beware of cheaply-made Damascene look-a-like pieces on the market that contain no precious metals. Damascene pieces made in Spain are generally prong-set into the mounting. Japanese-produced pieces are generally glued into the mounting.
Condition: All of the jewelry we sell is in very good - excellent antique, vintage or previously-owned condition (unless otherwise noted in the description). Keep in mind that most of the jewelry that we sell are vintage/antique pieces and will show signs of wear and age. The detailed photos that we provide are to be considered part of the item's description.
