Glowing like a stained-glass window, this vintage 18K gold plique-a-jour pendant is a truly a work of art. Plique-a-jour, French for "Light of Day", is one of the most challenging of the enameling techniques. Master craftsmen fill vibrant crystalline enamels into delicate unbacked cells, then fire them several times. This vintage plique-a-jour disk is the largest I've seen. Such a cool statement piece.
