What's for sale?
This is a beautiful bracelet of blue and white enamel over gold-plated Sterling silver, made by Norwegian jeweller David Andersen. Vermeil is the name given to plating silver with gold.
It comprises eleven gold-plated, Sterling silver panels, joined via pairs of silver links and fastened with a push-pull tongue clasp.
On each wide panel is a basse taille, sunburst, visible beneath the white enamel. On the smaller panels are champlevé flowers in a royal blue enamel.
Basse-taille (low cut) is the technique of engraving a pattern in relief and covering it with enamel, such that the engraving is still visible beneath.
Champlevé (raised field) is the technique of hollowing out bordered sections, filling them with enamel and polishing, such that a uniform height is achieved.
