Enamel Collection

Anna's Purple Emerald collects jewelery from a variety of perspectives.One of our popular collections is "Enamel".This time, I would like to talk a little about the history of enamel.

Enamel is a type of powder that usually consists of natural quartz sand and various metal oxides.This powder is made into fondant or paste and applied to metal for decoration.It is then fused to the object using a very high temperature (750-850 ° C).

The word enamel is derived from the old German word "smelzan" and means "smelt" in English. (In Japan, it is called "enamel" or "cloisonne".) The melting temperature determines the transparency of enamel and the intensity of its color. Generally, the higher the temperature, the more resistant to damage, the more durable and the transparent feeling. Form a certain enamel.Generally, the most reliable enamel uses only natural materials such as quartz sand and metal oxides, not artificial materials such as fiberglass.

Enamel is an ancient technique, but it is still popular today.They have been used for thousands of years.When classified as shown in the table below, it can be seen that enamel technology is diverse and has been evolving mainly in France since ancient times to decorate objects in fields such as porcelain and architectural painting in addition to jewelry.Enamel objects were produced in areas adjacent to the river for transport, with abundant trees to burn the enamel in a hot pot.

Enamel is heat resistant, durable and does not rust on glaze-covered areas.However, even if it is not as good as pottery, it is vulnerable to shocks, so you need to be careful to avoid falling.After using the jewelry, lightly polish it with a cloth so that no oil or water remains, and you can enjoy a beautiful luster for a long time.

Enamel has been found to have a history of over 3000 years.Of course, nowadays, technological innovation is progressing, and production methods and designs are free. Anna's Purple Emerald stocks vintage enamel items from Europe and the United States.Casually designed earrings, necklaces, rings and cufflinks that are easy to coordinate with modern fashion.I think that affordable pricing will also be an easy opportunity to incorporate.
