BlueStone, India’s leading omnichannel fine jewellery retailer has announced the launch of its new Spring-Summer collection, aptly titled ‘Plique-à-jour’, which in French translates to, ‘letting in daylight’, articulating the spirit of spring and natural beauty, with its unique vitreous enameling technique. In this technique, the enamel is applied into the cells of the jewellery piece with no backing, allowing light to shine through the transparent or translucent enamel, making the jewellery bloom with radiance.
The ‘Plique-à-jour’ collection draws Inspiration from the exotic Birds of Paradise – a species of birds found in tropical rainforests, adorned with bright feathers in vibrant hues. Birds of paradise are a staunch symbol of freedom, joy, faithfulness, love, and thoughtfulness, sentiments that are beautifully reflected in the new collection, created with intricate enamelling techniques, similar to the cloisonné process, an ancient technique for decorating metalwork objects with colored material. With 31 uniquely exquisite pieces, the Plique-à-jour collection is being offered at a starting price of Rs. 8,100, making it the perfect ornament, either for oneself or a loved one.
