Niello is the art of ornamenting metal surfaces that is thought to have originated with the Egyptians and spread throughout Europe in the Middle Ages. It is enamel-like substance made of alloys of sulfur, copper, silver and lead and used as an inlay on engraved metal. It was and still is a difficult technique to execute so chains such as this one are always sought after!
