The art of metal processing and the manufacture of various items and jewellery has been widespread in Cyprus since the Mycenaean era, even since the early 20th century.
From the 17th to the 19th century, a rise in the labor of art of silver-gold was presented in Cyprus. The best workshops were concentrated in the cities and especially in Nicosia during this period.
Various museums and private collections of ecclesiastical museums are remarkable examples of Cypriot silversmiths and goldsmiths.
For the manufacture of jewellery (rings, wedding rings, bracelets, necklaces, watches, icons) and various household and church items, craftsmen used different silver and gold processing techniques. The most important of these techniques were: engraved, wire or "trifurren", whip, perforated and molded.
Both techniques and designs in traditional silversmiths in Cyprus have many similarities to Greek and Balkan silversmiths due to the common Byzantine tradition of these regions. At the same time, Cypriot silversmiths also combined oriental elements and designs.
Another material that has been used extensively in Cyprus and which is directly linked to the history of Cyprus is copper.
