COMMENTS: Colorful butterfly link bracelet crafted in 800 silver, filigree style with guilloche enamel accent in the plique-à-jour style. The butterfly's have a gold wash finish with enamel colors including orange (1) cobalt blue (3) aqua blue (5) finally purple & chartreuse (4). There is one missing jump ring which we will replace prior to shipping. A very fine vintage piece, European in origin. Pictured as received from a local estate with undisturbed natural aged patina. Cleaning and/or polishing are available by request at no additional cost.
Plique-à-jour (French for "letting in daylight") is a vitreous enameling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. It is in effect a miniature version of stained-glass.
Special requests for polishing, sizing and shipping MUST be requested through the Ruby Lane site, preferably in the comment section when placing an order. Requests through email may not be received.
