Let Portuguese history tell you!
The golden brilliance of filigree jewelry makes it so that it stands out with almost any color!
From a sophisticated, classic look when layered on white and natural tones (See: www.lusajewelry.com) to a festive look with bright colors, filigree is highly versatile!
There is however one color that makes for a dramatic effect when worn with filigree jewelry and that is black!
Black is also the color traditionally worn by brides in the city of Viana do Castelo for centuries.
This traditional combination is also on spectacular display during the annual Festival of Nossa Senhora de Agonia’ (Our Lady in Sorrow), which takes place in August in Viana do Castelo.
At Lusa Jewelry, we like mixing a modern, urban style with this time-honored jewelry for an elegant look inspired by this long-standing tradition as seen below:
