The contrast in colours looks better in real life than in the photos, especially when the light catches the piece. The contrast comes from the etching and how I polish them afterwards. There is no secret about it other than my heat control and not letting anything burn may have something to do with it.
The finish I give these before laquering is with 2000 grit paper just to highlight the bright parts of the pattern.

The photo below shows a similar sized trinket box but made from carbon steel and nickel. The contrast on these when the light catches them is quite beautiful as the almost pure nickel has a different lustre to it.
