Beautiful Enamel Jewelry

Vitreous enamel, or just enamel (or porcelain enamel in U.S. English), is a material made by fusing powdered glass to a substrate by firing, usually between 750 and 850 degrees Celsius (1380 and 1560 degrees Fahrenheit). The powder melts, flows, and then hardens to a smooth, durable vitreous coating on metal, glass or ceramic. The fired enameled ware is a fully laminated composite of glass and metal. The word enamel comes from the High German word smelzan (to smelt) via the Old French esmail used as a noun, "an enamel" is a usually small decorative object, coated with enamel coating. Enameling is an old and widely-adopted technology, for most of its history mainly used in jewellery and decorative art, but since the 19th century applied to many industrial uses and in everyday day consumer objects. In British English there is a double "l" in "enamelled" and "enamelling" and other formations; American English uses "enameled" and "enameling".
Enamel is usually used in indian jewelry but can be found it some exotic pcs also. which has different or sometimes the same color enamel (a special paint used specially for jewelry). they are also called as meenakari jewelry. it can be found in black, red, green, white and many other colors it is very shiny n neva loosed its appearence. but the enamel jewelry when bought could be expensive but has lesser value when sold.
