ABOUT ENAMEL JEWELERY
Enameling is a decoration technique in which a glass of certain composition is fused to the surrounding or under laying metal. Although the exact origins are unknown, the art of enameling has been practiced since ancient times.
enamel has been used to create jewelry for centuries and is known by several names, including porcelain enamel, painted glass and vitreous enamel. It’s one of the oldest techniques of decorating the surface of jewelry.
Enamel jewelry is much like art, as the skill of the enameller can add an artistic quality to the piece. Because of the extent of skill and expertise required to make high quality enamel jewelry, well-crafted enamel jewelry is highly sought after and valued.
Enamel is a type of allochromatic glass that consists usually of quartz sand, iron oxide, potassium oxide (potash) and borax (flux). These components form a transparent and colorless fondant after firing at temperatures between 700 and 900 degrees Celsius. Their plethora of colors are established by the addition of different metal oxides and/or chlorides. After thoroughly crushing and washing these materials a hydrated mass is formed (a fondant) which is then applied on a suitable, and completely clean metal (typically gold, silver or copper alloys).
How to Clean and Care for Enamel Jewelry
Enamel is fairly easy to clean and maintain. It’s quite durable and isn’t easily prone to damage.
To keep enamel jewelry clean, just follow the same process that you would for other types of jewelry. Simply use warm water and a mild liquid soap to soak the enamel jewelry and then use a soft cloth or brush to remove any dirt on the piece. Rinse the piece thoroughly, taking care not to leave any soapy residue on the jewelry. Dry with a lint-free cloth and store it with care.
If you need to have your enamel jewelry repaired, find a jeweler specialised in working with enamel jewelry.
