The Enamel Collection
Bring your style to life with our whimsical collection of enamel charms - perfect for creating a look that is uniquely you.
Featuring a range of sterling silver pieces, the expertly detailed designs are brought to life with a technique called Cloisonné (pronounced ‘Cloy-zon-nay’), meaning raised edge in French.
Cloisonné first became popular in the jewellery of ancient Egypt, typically in very small pieces such as rings, with thin wire forming the cloisons. These little pockets or raised edges were added to jewellery by soldering silver wires to the surface. These little pockets were then filled with coloured enamel and fired.
The technique reached China in the 13th century and only the very rich could afford artwork and jewellery that used the technique. The most elaborate and highly-valued Chinese pieces are from the early Ming Dynasty.
Today, our artisans recreate this technique by casting our charms with raised edges in precious metals. The cloisons, or raised edges, are then filled with coloured enamel and fired to create the vivid colours and high gloss enamel look – each charm is a tiny work of art!
