If you are a vintage jewelry lover, you are surely familiar with seeing this type of “rose” motif, typically referred to as Guilloché (pronounced gee-oh-shay) used often in vintage jewelry.
What you may not know, however (as I didn’t!), is that it is not the painted rose that is at the heart of this technique, but it is the swirled engraved background design on the metal. Take a close look & you will clearly see it. It is produced using a special lathe or “rose machine” & originally dates back to the 17th century!
