‘What is Filigree and Cannetille Jewellery?’
Jewellery that features cannetille work is often mistaken for filigree detailing, as the two have several common features. Cannetille work is adapted from a style of fabric embroidery; featuring wire and metal sheeting crafted into delicate twists. Filigree detailing is much the same, with the key difference being the forms made by each style of wire/metal work. Where filigree jewellery is a single layer that lies flat, cannetille work often takes 3 dimensional forms, such as domes, flowers, shells and scrolls.


In superb original condition overall with no scratches or damage at all. The silver Cannetille work is intact and retains all its integrity. The central red stone is flawless.
