CUT STEEL JEWELRY
Jewelry set with cut steel faceted “gems” was popular during the eighteenth century as a substitute for diamonds and was often beautifully made, each “gem” carefully cut and studded by hand. In the nineteenth century , cut steel jewelry was already on the decline, and the high standards of workmanship gave way tp cheap slapdash costume jewelry now a substitute for humbler marcasite. But early cut steel is beautiful, highly collectible, and very wearable.
