With so many colours reigning supreme this fashion season, the versatile category of Enamel Jewellery has become a hot favourite!
So, with enamel experiencing stardom this season, we figured it’s time we tell you all about the whole process of enamelling. Right from, how it is done, what it is, how to take care of it and more. So, read on for some enamel loving.
What is Enamel Jewellery?
Any jewellery that has coloured decorative surface made using opaque and translucent glossy substance is called Enamel Jewellery.
There are many types of enamel and numerous techniques used in enamelling. At Melorra, we use the Cold Enamelling process using Epoxy Resin, to ensure a perfect finish and flawless colour match, with every single piece. Most of the time, enamelling is done by hand and takes a steady hand and an acute eye for detail.
There is one more process called the Hot Enamelling process, wherein, coloured glass is powdered and applied to a gold base, it is then fired at sufficient temperature to melt and form decorative surfaces.
Why Add Enamel?
We are all about what’s current and in-trend in the global fashion arena. So, when there is a colour that starts trending big, like White or Lavender, we use enamel to include the hue in our jewellery. Our enamel colour choices are never random, they are always derived from the latest fashion season, and it’s subsequent trend.
For our jewellery, we develop new colours in enamel to truly represent trends as accurately as possible. Because of this approach, we’ve been able to use some really unique enamel colours in some of our most popular collections – The White Edge Collection, The Lavender Collection, The Varsity Denim Collection and many more.
A New Take – Borderless Enamel
Traditionally, enamelling is done within a gold border. But, with our White Edge Collection from Spring-Summer’18, we innovated a new way of enamelling called the BORDERLESS ENAMEL. Wherein the gold border isn’t visible and the enamel literally flows from end to end, highlighting the colour without the visual distraction of a border.
As an added bonus, at Melorra, we weigh the jewellery before the enamel is filled in. So, you pay only for the gold in your jewellery, not for the enamel portion of it.
