Basse-taille (sometimes referred to as “jeweler’s enamel”) is a technique of enameling in which a pattern is engraved in low relief or beaten up in repoussé and then flooded with translucent or opaque enamel.
Its heyday was during the mid to late 19th century and the Victorians covered their jewelry with these intricate enamel designs.
Tulip flowers provide the basis for lyrical garlands of blooms and leaves. Covering the back and front, the bands appear to be shaped and three dimensional.
On textured ground, the edges are engraved with subtle diamond-shaped geometry. Created in 14k gold, the bangle also includes a safety chain for security.
