V//V EARRINGS III
ENKAOUA, chooses to use Vermeil rather than a simple gold plated, this one is more durable, less fragile and of a more beautiful color. Indeed, vermeil is an alloy made of solid silver, covered with 5 microns of 18-carat yellow gold.
This metal bath, considered precious, is hallmarked to guarantee its authenticity.
Rhodium plating prevents the natural oxidation of silver while giving it a whiter color, more reminiscent of white gold. This rhodium bath also helps prevent allergies to the metal.
It is therefore a guarantee of quality that not only protects the jewelry but also the customer.
VICE//VERSA IS ENKAOUA'S FIRST COLLECTION INSPIRED BY ASSUMPTIONS AND FIRST IMPRESSIONS.
WHILE LIVING IN LONDON, DEBORAH ENKAOUA WAS SET SIDE BY SIDE TO THE TYPICAL STEREOTYPES MADE AROUND PARISIANS AND FRENCH, WHICH SHE FELT WAS MISTAKEN AND UNTRUE. THIS EXPERIENCE HAD HER WORKING ON THE IDEAS OF ASSUMPTIONS AND PREJUDICE ANYBODY CAN LIVE AND GO THROUGH TODAY.
SHE PLAYS ON DIFFERENT VISIONS AND PERSPECTIVES WHICH PEOPLE HAVE ON SOMEONE OR SOMETHING. THEREFORE, THE COLLECTION WORKS AROUND THE IDEA OF DIFFERENT OPTICS GIVEN AND MANIPULATED BY THE EYE.
EACH PIECE IS COMPOSED OF TWO PARTS, IN WHICH EACH HAVE THEIR OWN DISTINCT SHAPE, COLOR, SIZE, AND FINISHING TOUCH. FROM THE DIFFERENT EXISTING ANGLES, THE PIECE WILL TAKE ON A NEW AND DIFFERENT PERCEPTION.
