What is Filigree?
Filigree is the intricate form of metalwork made from twisting and beading of metal. It is often described as ornamental or resembling the appearance of lace. Best executed in platinum jewellery, the delicate and elaborate filigree work became popular in the early 1900s during the Edwardian era. It's designs and patterns were inspired by the fine lace and silk worn by the women of the time often with floral or geometric motifs. With the rise of modern art in Paris during the 1920s the use of filigree in fine jewellery reached its height in the Art Deco era.
