The Art of the Filigree - created by Whitehouse Brothers
Like Fine Lace Made of Diamonds
Filigree jewelry is timeless and elegant. It has been said that filigree jewelry is like fine lace fashioned out of platinum and diamonds. The beauty is found in the unique details — floral motifs, scroll designs, emeralds, channel-set diamonds and fine beads of platinum. Just like the loved ones in your life, each piece has a history and these details are an expression of character.
The filigree designs produced today were brought from Germany and adapted in the early part of the 20th Century in “The Jewelry City” of Cincinnati. The Victorian, Art Nouveau and Edwardian periods are the three points in art history that most influence the jewelry designs found in this collection.
Popular motifs that you will see from this time period are floral images, organic patterns, and interwoven asymmetric flowing lines. As Art Deco styles came onto the scene during the 1920s, more geometric and abstract patterns emerged. You can see hints of art deco in the outside edges of many pieces.
Hand Engraved Process
Our artisans hand engrave each ring, unlike most manufacturers that produce finished rings directly from a mold. Learn more about the process of handcrafting filigree jewelry (recommended for high-speed connections) and the expert attention that each piece receives.
