Damascus Steel Wedding Rings Care & Facts
Damascus Steel is a blacksmith alloy created by fusing Surgical Steel with Fine Stainless Steel at extremely high temperatures. The two types of steel are alternately layered a hundred fold, and then the hybrid steel is twisted and shaped into a single solid bar. Various patterns are then folded into the solid bar of steel. It is from this bar that each Damascus wedding ring is cut.
Multiple layers are etched to reveal various pattern structures. The more layers crossed, the denser the pattern formed. Many styles of rings are then hand polished and dipped in acid which brings out the beautiful contrasts of the two steels. The result is a ring with a distinctive grey appearance.
It is the combination of these processes that make each Damascus steel wedding ring a truly one-of- a-kind masterpiece.
Damascus Steel along with most steels contain nickel and may not be a good choice for individuals with nickel allergies.
