Enamel Gemstone Guide

Introduction to Enamel

Enamel is made by fusing powdered glass at a high temperature to a metal. Enamel is usually opaque, coloured and often used to make jewellery. H.Samuel enamel jewellery includes cute childrens jewellery such as kids earrings. It is also a staple in the fun and funky jewellery brand Henry Holland.

Colour

Because enamel is a man made product it can be coloured any colour.

Sourcing enamel

Enamel is a man made material produced from naturally occurring minerals including sand, borax, soda ash and sodium fluoride. These substances are heated to high temperature until dissolved and rapidly cooled to create the glassy enamel product.

Caring for enamel

Store your enamel jewellery separately in a soft cloth pouch to prevent damage and scratching. To clean use warm soapy water and a soft cloth pat dry and be sure to remove any soapy residue, where possible avoid direct sunlight and extreme temperatures as this can cause discolouration.
