Most of the lapel pins you see that are being worn today are the Soft Enamel type of lapel pin. Soft enamel lapel pins offer many of the same benefits as of cloisonné.

An optional epoxy coating can be applied as a preventive measure to keep the colors from fading and cracking. This keeps your lapel pins looking their best for years to come. Enamel lapel pins can be gold, silver or nickel plated. Others add a clear epoxy dome for long-lasting durability and a shiny, finished look.  Soft enamel pins are rugged, versatile and affordable.
