Steel & Iron

Find out
Steel was used as a material in the antique jewellery manufacturing in Georgian and Victorian era. The most skilful processing of the metal can be worn today as 'cut steel' jewellery among others in the form of necklaces, earrings, bracelets and brooches. Considering the age of at least 150 years, the fine details in cut steel are more impressing than ever. The artful processing technique is not associated with the profession of jeweller craft, but the fine steel works. The starting material was horseshoe nails, which were cut as rough diamonds and were then fixed with rivets on a thin carrier plate.

The steel pins are mostly polished and faceted, to bring both elegance finesse in the works. Originally cut steel emerged in 1760 in Birmingham, England. The highly productive time of this particular jewellery then extended across Europe from 1830 to 1880. Thereafter, the material was for many decades granted no more attention in the jewellery industry. We are very proud of the creative cut steel jewellery, which we can offer in our range to the jewellery enthusiastic people. cut steel was originally travel jewellery. The original diamond jewellery remained in the safe and one travelled with steel jewellery, whose loss was not so painful in case of any raids.
