• Damascus rings

Its one of my favorite basic materials. Not only because in Hungary we started first to produce rings made of also known as Damascus steel. Our jewels are made exclusively from stainless steel materials!

By simplifying the essence of ramming, I could describe the process the following way: two different types of steel with different characteristics are layered and stapled together; after that the resulting "sandwich metal" is folded and reconnected. We keep doing this until we get the desired layer number.

The ancient technique of damascus was always kept secret; this traditional craft was passed on from father to son. So there were not two workshops that could have made the same raw material. In Japan, with this technique, the famous samurai swords were made by the Katanas. But beautiful wakizashis and tantos were made from damascus steel as well. The technique was introduced much later in Europe as Japan tried to keep its secrets. The "new" technique became the emblem of Damascus, and that is where the name originates from. (Damascus steel)

When I met this material for the first time, I fell in love with it and immediately started wondering how this special technique could be implemented to our jewelry.
