Production of cut steel began in the 18thC. 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 were 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.
All Badger's Velvet jewellery is unique made using vintage pieces sourced around the world then remodelled by one of our jewellers to create beautiful contemporary pieces.
