It is easy to see why oxidized jewelry has gained popularity. Not only does it have a unique look but it is versatile and cost-effective in comparison to purer metals like gold and silver. Oxidized metal comes in myriad patterns with stonework, delicate carving and enameling to name a few. These pieces have an old world charm and traditional appeal. Oxidization creates a light and shadow effect in jewelry while making colored stones on them stand out. Oxidized metal offers a fresh and novel look in the world of gold and silver jewelry.
