Taille d'epargné- (pronounced "Tie-duh-parn"- sometimes spelled Taille d'epergné) also known as black enamel tracery. To cut or carve "sparingly" and fill with opaque black enamel, French literal translation "saving cut". This was popular in early to mid-Victorian jewelry, and often employed in Memento Mori, memorial and mourning jewels. By the late 1800's this enameling technique was no longer in favor, (as well as the stringent rules of etiquette for mourning relaxing a bit), and enameling techniques transitioned to engine turned semi-transparent and translucent guilloche enamel, with an over all "lighter" look and feel.
