3 A Jewelers Bench by Trademark | Hawaiian Jewelry | Glass Enamel VS Epoxy

GLASS ENAMEL VERSUS EPOXY

The Jeweler's Bench by Trademark Jewelers uses only glass enamel.

Those of you familiar with Hawaiian Heirloom Jewelry have most likely seen it before - - a cousin or friend just received their new piece of Hawaiian Heirloom and the colored enamel is already coming out. Yes, it came with a lifetime warranty, but how many times are you going to go back to replace it? Sound Familiar?

Well, there's a reason why the letters keep coming out - -it is not glass enamel. The truth is, epoxy or plastic enamel, can be affected in a lot of ways (chlorine in the swimming pool is just a common one of the many). The edges start to harden, then curl up, and eventually the whole letter falls out.

Now, how many of you have a favorite Auntie that has an old Hawaiian bracelet or family heirloom, and not only are the names still there, but it is the original enamel? The explanation: those are hand-cut letters that contain glass enamel. (See "hand cut vs machine")
