Cut Steel Jewelry
1. Cut Steel Jewelry 
Cut steel jewelry is very collectible and not common.  Most was made in England. The process of hand cutting and polishing each steel bead, then riveting it onto a back piece was extremely laborious and time-consuming. Care should be taken to keep them dry, as cut steel jewelry is susceptible to rust., which is why the jewelry is more difficult to find today.

The cut steel jewelry process dates back to at least the sixteenth century and became the height of fashion in the eighteenth (Georgian) and nineteenth centuries (Victorian).  The polished silvery-gray jewelry was made to imitate the glitter of diamonds and sparkle in candlelight.

The polished steel studs could have as many as 15 facets, and in general, the more facets on the studs, and the smaller the studs, the finer and older the piece. Later jewelry had larger cut steel brads.

Trifari Fantasia Series
18. Trifari Fantasia Series 
Some years ago, I bought a vintage Vogue magazine with the Trifari Ad depicting its Fantasia Series from 1957.  I decided then that I was on a quest to collect each of the pins shown in the ad.  My first purchase was the Trifari poodle pin.
