Damascene Jewelry Store Offers Buyers a Unique Taste of Luxury
(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 01, 2012 ) Wynnewood,Pennsylvania -- Collectors, history buffs and jewelry lovers around the world are familiar with Damascene Jewelry, and the jewelers at Damascene Jewelry Store have created a website (http://www.damascenejewelrystore.net) that is geared specifically toward the aficionados of the rare and unique style of jewelry that has been admired throughout the world for thousands
The Damascene art was known for centuries in Egypt, Greece, Rome, Arabia and in Japan. Around the XV century the art work became popular in Europe, and Toledo, Spain became European capital of damascene industry. Toledo is also famous by production of Toledo swords made of the legendary Toledo steel.
Damascene jewelry isnt just a regular costume jewelry product, said J.B., owner of Damascene Jewelry Store. The products we sell on our website are the real deal. Damascene jewelry is a part of history, and it has to be created in a very particular manner, which means our jewelry is meant for the customer or the collector with a discerning eye for detail.
Traditionally Damascene designs focus on two distinct types of patterns. Either Renaissance motifs with birds, usually doves, and flowers or Arabesque and geometric designs. Our damascene products are hand crafted by damascene artisans in Toledo Spain and many of the designs will reflect the artisans unique personal interpretation creating a highly collectible jewelry or gift item.
A lot of the "Damascene products" advertised for sale on the internet are actually made in the "Damascene Technique" or would be better called "Faux Damascene," said the owner.They have the appearance of genuine Damascene, in that they are often black and gold, but the gold is not usually genuine 18k or 24K, or even gold at all, and much of it is mass machine produced, usually in the Far East.
In addition to only using genuine gold, Jewelry Store staff insists the products are the best available because they are made in the traditional Damascene style, meaning the traditional process to create the works of art is following strictly. According to jewelry store staff, the Damascene process is the art of inlaying different metals into one another-typically, gold or silver into a darkly oxidized steel background-to produce intricate patterns similar to niello. The English term comes from a perceived resemblance to the rich tapestry patterns of damask silk.
People who seek out Damascene jewelry often have very particular tastes, and the beauty and quality of the product lies in the way the jewelry is made, and what materials are used to make each piece, but unfortunately when people are searching for this type of jewelry, they products they find often come up short, said owner.
There are so many imitations, and its unfortunate, because true Damascene jewelry is not only a reflection of thousands of years of artistic history, but also remarkably well made and hand-crafted. Thats why its so important to us to emphasize to buyers that our products are authentic and of the upmost quality available.
