Damascene pieces are 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 the 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 jewelry pieces made in Spain are generally prong-set into the mounting. Japanese produced pieces are generally glued into the mounting.
