    Cabochonné enamel

    Cabochonné enamel - Van Cleef & Arpels

    The Cabochonné enameling technique consists of applying a thick layer of enamel to create a relief effect on the dial. Instead of being flat, the enamel has a rounded surface.

    To achieve this result, the craftsmen leave the layer of enamel untouched, instead of polishing it to make it flat and regular. The unpolished enamel’s rounded surface is used deliberately to add depth, volume, shine, and luminosity to the dial’s decorative motif.
