Filigree is one of the most delicate types of jewellery metalwork, which generally uses precious metals, like gold and silver, in art pieces created with small and detailed beads and twisted threads fused together or onto an object. Its fragility often makes us remember the texture of lace.

This ancient technique creates artworks with the finest beauty, often giving us the impression of being made with lace. In the past, it was common in ItalyFrance and Portugal, from 1660 to the late 19th century. In that time, filigree became very popular in the French fashion. Not only is filigree still a wonderful and renowned jewellery technique in contemporary design, but it was also always, since ancient times, a key part of the art pieces made by the jewellers.

The fine grains, beads and spines of gold, barely with the thickness of a hair, were used and still appear in contemporary designs. Gold filigree is still very popular, probably thanks to its cost-efficiency, its design and its detailed craftsmanship.
