Plique-à-jour, a translucent enameling technique first developed in the Byzantine era, translates literally from the French to “letting in daylight.”  How about this exquisite Victorian plique-à-jour butterfly pin, circa 1880, set with 3 cabochon rubies and 90 old cut diamonds, to let a little daylight in?
