    I´m so happy to now have this rare piece in my collection.
    It´s a victorian cut steel bracelet. Cut steel was high fashion at the time and most of it was produced in England. I have red it was first made in England in the early 1700´s although some records show it started much earlier, in the 1500´s. Cut steel is often mistaken for marcasite.

    Because of the nature of the material these pieces of jewelry were prone to rust. That´s why it´s hard to find these today and to find ones without rust. This bracelet has survived fairly well, no rust but a few tiny rivets missing. I think it still shows spectacular craftmanship. What do you think?

      Thank you Efesgirl. I hope you will. I stumbled over mine. Someone wrote "markasit" which I knew was not right and that this was something more rare and valuable. Won the auction and payed a very small sum.

      Elisabeth, you are very welcome and I will spell your name properly from now on too!! :-) My attention to detail is not as good as it used to be......thanks, Judy.
    11. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 4 years ago
      Thank you Judy but no worries :) how would you know. I rarely use my name here and the "Elisabethan" could have been spelled wrong by mistake and not on purpose like it is. Nice to "talk" to you :). Have a nice day!
