Portuguese Traditional Jewelry is Filigree!
Filigree is the Portuguese traditional jewelry. Filigree is “a delicate kind of jewelry metalwork, usually of gold and silver, made with tiny beads or twisted threads, or both in combination, soldered together or to the surface of an object of the same metal and arranged in artistic motifs”
Jewelry in Portugal is an age/old Portuguese tradition, an art that has spread from arm to arm with Portuguese history. Since the fifteenth century, during the magnificent maritime epics, precious stones and metals, such as Angola's diamonds, gold from Brazil and other valuable materials, were part of the routes of raw materials and products that were brought from the territories to Portugal. The materials were used by goldsmiths in jewelry and pieces of sacred art, such as the magnificent traditional custodians.
Vintage Portuguese jewelry designs are very popular, but perhaps you prefer the more minimalist and clean designs in Gold, Silver or Gold plated.
