Damascus steel rings offer a captivating blend of ancient craftsmanship and modern aesthetics.

To make Damascus steel, skilled artisans layer and forge two or more types of steel with different properties, such as high carbon steel and nickel steel. These layers are then heated and hammered together, creating a solid billet. The billet is repeatedly folded and twisted, a process known as pattern welding, which creates the characteristic wavy patterns that Damascus steel is known for. After extensive shaping and refinement, the metal is etched with acid to enhance the contrast between the different layers and bring out the intricate patterns.
