Plique-jour is a technique used by the French enamellists Lalique and Feuillatre in the 1900's. The French term means "glimpse of day".

This difficult technique has been revived by the craftsman who made this pendant. The enamel is suspended between gold wires and is fired without any backing so that the light can shine through.

A plique-a-jour enamel piece requires many painstaking hours to complete. Patience and humility are the most important tools for this technique! It's a work of art that needs to be treated with care like a fine glass sculpture.

Diamond is the Birthstone for April
