Vitreous enamel is a powdered glass, applied in several layers and fused to a metal surface in a high temperature environment. Opaque enamels are produced by adding or growing crystals within a glass structure. There are many techniques used to build up enchanting colors, or reveal the metal surfaces below. Believed by some historians to be an ancient alternative to gemstones in jewelry and ornaments, enamels have been used for thousands of years to apply rich color to metal. The earliest surviving enamels date from about 1400-1425 BC. A difficult technique to master, it is seldom used in modern production jewelry because of its detail and variations as well as time consuming processes.
