Summertime means lightweight fabrics, pretty pastels and vibrant colors with a fresh feel. And what better way to highlight these seasonal wardrobe elements into your every day, than with pretty patterns in your accessories. We’ve spotted lace like motifs in jewelry designs like lattice, trellis and the ever-popular filigree, and we can’t get enough of this 22k gold look. Ms Bradley presents a trend report on this decorative jewelry summer staple that is hot enough to take you into fall.
The History Behind Filigree: How is it made?
Filigree gold jewelry is a traditional artistic form of metalwork that dates back to 3000 BC. The intricate technique incorporates individual elements or a combination of small beads and twisted threads in gold or silver. The pattern is than soldered together or placed on top of an accessory to create delicate lace like details. The unusual jewelry design has been popular throughout the centuries in different parts of the world and still remains a sought-after effect in the Asian and Indian community.
