Portuguese Filigree

The story of Portuguese Filigree began with two dynamic Portuguese sisters and a creative husband, who realised that the handmade jewellery industry lacked beautiful handcrafted Portuguese silver jewellery. Since that day the sisters decided to put all their efforts in getting in touch with Portuguese Filigree artisans to deliver wonderful and romantic filigree pieces. 

Portugal has strong traditions in the art of filigree jewellery and a rich heritage of timeless jewellery.  The art of filigree has especially remained alive as a distinctive symbol of the regions of Gondomar, Viana do Castelo and Póvoa do Lanhoso. Filigree jewellery making requires lots of expertise on the part of the artisan. It is the result of a meticulous interlacing of fine sterling silver or gold wires welded together with small metal balls, forming drawings that depict the lives of Portuguese people. Today the tradition is not lost and there is an ever-increasing interest in the art of filigree making. Portuguese filigree jewellery is a mark of social distinction, being mostly used in special events such as weddings or popular festivals.
