Enameled Jewelry

« Back to Common Questions
Enamel is a kind of glass fused to metal, usually copper, silver or gold, at high temperatures [around 800 degrees Centigrade].   Enameling adds a beautiful touch to precious metals.  It takes a "regular" piece of jewelry and makes it unique.  Most enameling is done by hand and takes a steady hand and with good eye.  Enameling may have been invented independently in around the world.  However, the most widely used enameling orignated in Cyprus.  Please wear your enameled jewelry with care.  Just as a dropped glass can shatter... enameling can shatter or crack if banged against another object or dropped.  Because enamel is essentially glass, it must be treated as such.  While techniques have improved, and our enamel pieces are designed with the utmost of quality and care, little things such as medications you may be on, or lotions and shampoo can react with the jewelry you are wearing and may cause the enamel to chip or wear faster than expected.  So again, wear your items with care, do not expose them to harsh or common household chemicals, remove all jewelry before bathing, swimming or immersing in a hot tup or steam bath.  Treat it like the precious item it is and it will last a lifetime!
