Script Letter Charm with Black Enamel
- An Ode to Enamel
The striking contrast between the script letter and the bed of jet-black soft enamel (that mimics the dark sheen of an onyx) in this charm makes for a bold statement. The letter, frame and bale can come in your choice of metal: yellow gold vermeil, sterling silver, or 14k yellow gold. This piece is designed to be paired with one of our Invisible Clasps, and then attached to our Wall Street necklace or bracelet, or to one of our recycled glass bead necklaces or bracelets. (Of course, you can be attach it to any chain necklace or bracelet that you already own, provided that your chain and chain ends can be threaded through the bale.) From the Expression Collection.

Enamel in jewelry is not a new concept. In fact, it has been around for centuries, ever since artisans from the olden days discovered that it could make for an effective, less expensive alternative for colored semi-precious stones. And that is exactly the formula that we emulated here: originally we designed these script letter charms to feature howlite and onyx backings, but because we could not find stones that demonstrated ethical provenance, we decided to go the enamel route instead. And they turned out beautifully! RIVA New York has an enamel department dedicated to bring pieces to life with their expert techniques and creative eye!
Script Letter Charm with Black Enamel
Can I request for a custom enamel color?
At this time, we only offer script letter charms in white enamel and black enamel.
Can you customize the font of my letter charm?
No, we will not be able to customize the font of your letter charm at this time.
What is gold vermeil?
Gold vermeil is a type of high-end gold plating. Gold vermeil is more hypoallergenic because it uses a thicker layer of gold (at least 2.5 microns thick) compared to regular gold plating. Gold vermeil is a more affordable alternative to solid gold pieces.
