Antique and detailed gold filigree work. The pendant has a big red coral in the center. The design of the filigree is very nice and perfect. Mid of XIX century. From Sardinia. It is in perfect conditions. 14K gold ( touchstone tested ). The word comes from the Latin “filum granum” i.e. thread grain which represents the form in which the filigree is made joining together very thin wires ( of gold or silver ) round, flat, twisted etc.. also with grains or other decorating elements.
This technique demands very high skills and precision from the goldsmith. For more information on the filigree please visit our news section : www.preciousandantique.com/en/the-filigree
