Imitation hard enamel pin is the favorite material for olympic mascots or big annual events. It has replaced parts of the hard enamel pins because of similarity than hard enamel material, lower cost, fast delivery time and much more colors to choose from. Customers always praise our imitation hard enamel pins because they are brighter, shinier and more smooth than other suppliers products.
It is not easy to tell the difference from hard enamel to imitation hard enamel pins with visual sense because the production procedures are so close each other, however if you stab the color areas with sharp-pointed knife, you will quickly find out which is real hard enamel and which is imitation one. As you can image if your knife point goes into colors, it is imitation hard enamel; if you feel the color is as hard as rock, the knife point can't go into further, it is real hard enamel (cloisonné lapel pins). With our little skill, you won't be fooled by anyone.
