Damascus steels are said to have legendary properties. People speak of their unbelievable durability, films like 'Highlander' create an almost mystical flair about the 'folded' blades and even today one hears that, for example, a knife made of Damascus should be able to split nails without being damaged.
The starting material for the production of Damascus steel is iron with different contents of accompanying elements such as carbon, manganese, silicon, etc. . Damascus steel is folded, forged, folded again, forged, ...
This creates individual inner structures. Humphrey uses selected Damascus steels with appropriate patterns.
The result is an optical treat that impresses with its alternating dark and light lines. They are created by etching the surface, because this is where the different layers emerge. Each piece of jewelry is unique and exceptional.
These stud earrings feature a pattern that is vaguely reminiscent of wood grain. These structures go through and through and can be re-etched at any time. Each pattern is unique and cannot (!) be influenced. The pattern is what it is. All edges are softened and feel soft.
When designing a star, one first thinks of many points. But we didn't like it that way and we made the star much softer. The result is impressive and also reminds some of a starfish or Patrick. You can also find this star as a pendant.
The ear stud patent - called O-Pop by us - was developed and protected by Humphrey. It contains a spring inside, the secure seat of which does not change even after years. The size is optimal, you can hold the part well, but not too big to attract attention. A spherical indentation ensures that the pin of the ear stud automatically finds its way into the hole.
Humphrey offers a 2 year warranty with proper care. However, the lifespan is unlimited. Most of the jewelry ever produced by Humphrey is still worn.
