Vintage Star Design Damascene Pendant.
The art of Damascene begins with a scored or carved out steel base, at which point the design metal is hammered into the scored metal. Oxidation creates the black background. The Japanese, Greeks and Spaniards all had different versions of basically creating the same effect. The differences can be seen in the artwork, which is detailed and reflective of it's origins. The art itself, dates back thousands of years.
The pendant measures 1 5/8" by 7/8" or 42mm by 23mm. A simple black silk cord (not included) would look great with this pendant.
