Damascene - "Damasquino"

Hand Made in Toledo Spain
We now carry Silver Damasquino!




Damascene or "Damasquino"
is the art of decorating non-precious metals with gold. It has roots in the Middle Ages and originates from the oriental-style artisan work done in Damascus, Syria. The craft has remained virtually unchanged over the centuries. Damascene jewelry items generally reflect two distinct patterns; the "Arabesque" or geometric designs, and "Renaissance" motifs, displaying variations of birds and flowers. These patterns are obtained by engraving deep, patterned cuts into steel and then placing a gold foil into the lines of the design. This foil is hammered until the gold (or silver) penetrates into the cuts forming the design. Each piece is treated with a solution to obtain oxidation and a black background is created. Toledo, Spain is the world's largest center of production of Damascene or "Damasquino" jewelry and gift items.

Designs may not be exactly the same as pictured due to artisans creativity.
