Lovely genuine damascene link bracelet made in Toledo, Spain with Renaissance motifs of doves and scroll.
Damascening (the art of Damasquinando in Spanish) is the inlaying of different metals into one another-typically, gold or silver into a darkly oxidized steel background-to produce intricate patterns similar to niello. The English term Damascene comes from a perceived resemblance to the rich tapestry patterns of damask silk.
Bracelet is made of steel with 24K gold overlay producing its beautiful design. Each round dove scene link measures 20 mm. Bracelet length is 8 “. It has a box clasp and safety chain. Condition is excellent.
