Damascus steel info
Damascus Steel was developed in Syria, in Damascus more than two thousand years ago. It was and still is a revolutionary material with durability and particularly beautiful structures produced from it. Two different kinds of stainless steel, hard-hardening and soft has a number of layers, making it extremely durable. It manufactured with the highest quality products for demanding users, among others Japanese samurai swords and knives.
This fascinating and challenging material inspired me to design damascus steel jewelry, which are also made by me. The jewelry are made of stainless damascus steel and chain link is the 925 silver (sterling). Damascus steel price is more expensive than silver and approx. 100 times more expensive than the so-called normal stainless steel. Damascus steel used for pendants not contain nickel, so it is safe for nickel allergy sufferers.
