Damascene Jewelry Gallery

Sometimes classified  as a type of souvenir jewelry,  Damascene jewelry is made by embedding wire or metal shapes into blackened iron or steel.  The delicate designs are made primarily  in Japan (Amita) and in Spain (Toledo).
Both types
use the same design styles therefore unsigned  damascene jewelry is sometimes difficult to identify as to origin.
Amita is also referred to as Komai which began in 1855 with the decorating of Samurai swords and entailed a very tedious design application using a needle and then adding gold or silver.
