The Beauty Of Heritage In The World Of Luxury – Enamel
Enamel has become the first choice of high-end jewelry designers for its brilliant color, gem-like luster and texture, and the beauty of inheritance that can last for thousands of years without fading and losing its luster.
What is enamel?
Enamel refers to a glassy material covering the surface of metal products. It is a naturally formed organic mineral. The main raw materials are quartz, feldspar, and metal oxides.
Usually, after high-temperature baking above 500℃, the enamel glaze will melt into a thick liquid, which will have gem-like luster and texture after cooling, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, high-temperature resistance, waterproof and moisture-proof, high hardness, and no aging Deterioration, can go through thousands of years without fading, without losing its luster.

Second, The History Of Enamel Technology
The enamel process has a history of more than 3,000 years, and its firing technology has also been fully developed and improved. In China, systematic and mature enamel craftsmanship is imported from two periods and two lines.
The first time was at the end of the 13th century and the beginning of the 14th century when the rulers of the Yuan Dynasty introduced a relatively mature cloisonné enamel craft in the Arab region through years of conquest and expansion.
This technique began to be fired in large quantities in the Ming Dynasty and reached its peak during the Jingtai period. Because most of the products at that time were mainly peacock blue, people called this process “cloisonne enamel”, and later referred to as “cloisonne”.

The second time was in the 17th century when European merchants and missionaries were introduced to Guangzhou, China by sea, with transparent hard francs and the technique of painting francs.
This exceptionally exquisite craftsmanship was loved and valued by the emperor as soon as it entered China. The three emperors Kangxi, Yongzheng, and Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty all set up enamel workshops in Guangdong and Guangdong at the Imperial Palace in Beijing and selected excellent enamel artisans from Guangdong many times. Entered Beijing to work, mass-produced, and made enamel products for the royal family to enjoy.

Third, The Different Types Of Enamel Craftsmanship
According to the production process of the carcass and the glazing method, it can be divided into cloisonné enamel, chisel enamel, painted enamel, light-transmitting enamel, etc.
Cloisonne Enamel is also known as inlaid enamel. It is made by hand-bending a metal wire with a width of no more than 0.07 mm into a pattern outline, welding and fixing it on the metal carcass to form a cavity, filling it with enamel glaze, and then firing.
Each layer of color should be baked at a high temperature once and can be polished after repeated coloring and baking. After a series of processes such as firing, polishing, and gold plating.
Chisel Enamel is also known as tick enamel. Different from cloisonné enamel, the pattern outline on the metal carcass is carved out by techniques such as chisel engraving, knocking, and pressing, and then fills the depressions with various colors of enamel glaze with a fine brush, which is fired and polished.
The Work Of Russian Jewelry Designer Ilgiz Fazulzyanov
Chisel enamel has a similar surface effect to cloisonné enamel, and both have a gem-setting effect.
The difference between the two lies in the metal processing process, that is, the starting method of the pattern. Cloisonné enamel is the use of the metal cloisonné technique, with thin and thin metal wires or metal sheets welded to the metal tire to form decorative patterns.
Painted Enamel is also known as micro-painted enamel. Enamel is used as a pigment to paint on the carcass.
It’s all about “painting”. The production process is to first cover the blastoderm with a layer of anti-deformation enamel glaze, and then the enamel master draws several layers of color glaze on the blastoderm with the help of a delicate brush and a microscope and draws a delicate pattern before firing.
Translucent Enamel also known as window enamel, began in France in the fourteenth century. Refers to a bottomless transparent enamel. Filled with various colors of transparent glass enamel composition inside the metal outline. Because it does not require a bottom embryo-like other enamel processes, the enamel sheet presents a transparent and bright quality.
