Plique-a-jour enamelling is a rare technique in which enamel is applied without any backing in the final product. This results in light shining through the enamel to create an effect similar to the beautiful glow of stained glass, which is a feature of this technique. Plique-a-jour was particularly popular during the Art Nouveau movement. MIKIMOTO is once again directing its focus on this technique – which has become almost forgotten with the passing of time – in its ongoing pursuit of beauty to ensure that this technique will continue to be maintained and passed on into the future. In this piece, plique-a-jour, in the form of fresh flowers depicted in subtle colours, has been combined with the mystique of pearls. These two organic and beautiful elements create an unparalleled symphony of beauty.
