Email de Plique Earrings

These earrings are inspired by a "émail de plique", which is a term used to designate an ornament usually sewn on a garment. This element of luxurious adornment is a specific creation of the Parisian goldsmiths around 1300.

The "émails de plique" deploy an ornamental repertoire of clovers, hearts and circles, delimited by thin gold partitions and filled with opaque blue, red and white enamels, or with translucent and colorless enamel. Made according to a variant of the technique of enamel cloisonné, all finesse and delicacy, they offer games of transparency and light.
