Filigree engagement rings are delicate and intricate and their fine artistry makes a unique statement. Filigree is an ancient art that uses very thin pieces of metal to create shapes, the same way that quilling uses pieces of paper. The term comes from the Latin word for “thread” because the metal is so light and airy. A filigree engagement ring refers to either filigree itself or designs inspired by filigree.
