What is a filigree engagement ring?

- Sep 03, 2018-

Filigree is a particular style of lacy metal work made of ornately woven metal wire. In engagement rings, this is used to decorate either the band or the setting for the gemstone. Filigree work was very popular during the Edwardian era, and many antique engagement rings feature elaborate filigree designs and settings. Modern engagement rings made to imitate vintage styles often have filigree designs.
