What is Filigree?
If you’re not exactly sure what filigree even is, you’re not alone. Many people have seen filigree details in engagement ring designs from the early 1900s, antique jewelry from the Victorian or Edwardian eras, or even in modern designs of today, but may not know that the delicate metalwork they are looking at has a name. The word filigree is derived from the word “filigreen” which comes from the Latin word “filum” which means thread and “granum” which means grain. Together, those words represent the ornamental work of fine wire (usually made of gold or silver) that is formed into a combination of delicate lattice often connected by small beads. These fine threads of metal are twisted or curled into a design then soldered onto or into the engagement ring. Archeologists have uncovered filigree jewelry from the ancient Mesopotamians that is more than 5,000 years old. In Asia and India, it has been a prevalent part of their jewelry for millennia.
