Creating Damascus steel is a centuries old technique. Two different types of stainless steel are fused together under extremely high heat then hammered into distinctive patterns. Damascus steel rings, therefore, are completely unique. No two choices are exactly the same.
The technique used to craft metal in this way was used for sword making in the Middle East for several centuries, and then apparently lost in time. Damascus swords were renowned for their strength and sharpness, and became the stuff of legend. Claims of slicing through rock and other inferior swords are clearly myth, but indicative of the superiority of this method of steelmaking.
Now used to create legendary jewelry, Damascus refers to the visible grain pattern, sometimes textured, that is exposed in the piece. Buy a ring thatís the stuff of mythology and create your new legend starting now.

In addition, stainless steel jewelry is quite striking. You must see it to truly appreciate the beauty that comes with this choice. It is a great alternative to Damascus steel rings for those with allergies, etc. who need that extra peace of mind.
