The term 'filigree' denotes a decorative openwork piercing technique in which patterns are made of wires, often soldered to a background in a precise, time-consuming, and costly process. Filigree work was familiar to Europe for centuries and reached its highest popularity in the 1830's. London and Paris jewelers possibly acquired their inspirations from Portugal or North Africa where filigree had been a common goldsmith technique along the Mediterranean coast. European and American manufacturers started mass production of filigree in the 1930's by cutting patterns out of stamped metal sheets. The piercing, however, had to be done by hand and was therefore labor intensive and expensive. Today, it is only the Italians, the Chinese and a few others who continue hand-producing intricate designs, making filigree boxes and rosary beads in addition to jewelry.
