Part of it looks stamped with polished beveled stamps. Precious and soft metals can be worked in this way like leather. A highly polished stamp with rounded edges is used to create this effect. The metal will naturally take on the same level of polish as the stamp, so if the stamp is mirror finished, the stamped metal is likewise mirror finished. It's a pretty common and traditional technique among Navajo silversmiths. The rest looks bright cut, with polished gravers.
