Considering the stages of human development from a material and spiritual point of view, a significant achievement in this
field is the discovery and study of metals, as well as the invention of methods for their processing. The result of activity and
constant search in this direction is the creation and development of metallurgy. Masterpieces of jewellery are presented to us
as a continuation of these processes. An integral part of these processes is the accumulation of knowledge through observation
and improvement of the learned rules and techniques. One of the most important of them is the brazing process as a method of
joining finished metal parts that was invented by a human at an early stage of human development. 8 Ref., 8 Fig.
