A type of decoration made, in the manner of cloisonné enamelware, by outlining the design on a metal base with thin wire or strips of metal (cloisons) and filling in the spaces with cemented slices of colored gemstones or glass cut to fit the spaces and usually backed with silver or gold foil. The design covers the entire metal base and results in a smooth surface. It is found on Egyptian jewelry, and later Carolingian and northern Germanic and Anglo-Saxon jewelry. The technique was revived to create Egyptian revival jewelry in the 19th and 20th century. The French term was verroterie cloisonnée.
