Enamel is in! With the slowing economy, more penny-pinching consumers are turning to enamel for colored jewelry because it offers a bright look without a high price. Consumers who aren't looking to save money can find new-again enamel jewelry at higher price points from the Victorian and Art Deco periods.
The June issue of Elle features Victorian and Art Deco enamel bracelets including: an enamel bangle with rose-cut diamonds, circa 1900, from Terry Rodgers & Melody; a French gold-and-enamel bracelet with detachable brooch, circa 1870, from James Robinson; an American gold-and-enamel bangle, circa 1880, from Kentshire Galleries at Bergdorf Goodman and a red enamel bracelet with 14k gold by Jean Schlumberger exclusively for Tiffany & Co.
