A Guide to Filigree Diamond Rings
Filigree is a design method full of heritage, and has stood the test of time. The word ‘filigree’ is generally used to describe metal which has been given an intricate and ornamental design style. However, in the realm of fine jewelry, filigree has a more specific definition.
In this realm, filigree is the use of pliable threads of either white gold, rose gold, yellow gold, or platinum, which are finely and delicately made to twist into complex, organic designs. Scrollwork, tiny motifs, lacework, natural forms—these are all created through the use of filigree in jewelry.
