About: Enamel picturs and enamel color codes.


Gold Jewelry : Fancy

"Cloisonné":
French for "cell", where thin wires are applied to form raised barriers, which contain different areas of (subsequently applied) enamel and we can also cover the entire work with a thin layer of transparent enamel to obtain a uniform surface.
With modern techniques we normally obtain a casting in one single piece that already has borders made by computer in rapid prototyping or in the wax by hand. Then we use the "Champlevé" technique to rework the thin separating borders and obtain a finer result.

"Champlevé", French word for "raised field", where the surface is carved out to form pits in which enamel is fired, leaving the original metal exposed.

«Cloisonné à jours », or « Cloisonné plique à jours » :
French for "open to daylight" where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. It has a stained-glass like appearance.

"Les paillons:
Thin gold or silver sculpted plates visible between two layers of transparent enamel.

"Basse-taille":
From the French word meaning "low-cut". The surface of the metal is decorated with a low relief design which can be seen through translucent and transparent enamels.

Color Codes:
We can propose transparent base, pearl effect or sparkles using same color codes.
