By definition: Plique-à-jour (French for "letting in daylight") is a vitreous enamelling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. The tecnique dates back to the Byzantine Empire in the 6th Century AD. Some of the surviving examples were in the form of Georgian Icons.

The tecnique was adopted by Kievan Russia but was lost during the Mongol Invasion in the 13th century. The french term was adopted during the 14th century onwards. Currently plique-à-jour still not often used because it is challenging technically and mainly due to break in transferring of skills between generations of jewelers.

Although some luxury houses (Tiffany in jewellery, Bulushoff in jewellery and tableware) produce limited numbers of products in plique-à-jour technique. Works in shotai shippo technique are also known from China and Iran.
