Cloisonné (French pronunciation: ​[klwazɔne]) is an ancient technique for decorating metalwork objects, in recent centuries using vitreous enamel, and in older periods also inlays of cut gemstones, glass, and other materials. The resulting objects can also be called cloisonné. – no, I didn’t know either! 😉
