Production of cut steel began in the 16thC. From 1750 decorative pieces began to appear, as "Stars for the nobility" or poor man's diamonds. Jewellery and hair adornments were among the designs and often combined with precious jewels . In the late 18thC a Birmingham manufacturer began major production creating cut steel shoe buckles to adorn the shoes of Georgian men and women.
