There is nothing new about the creation of filigree jewelry; this technique has actually been around since the Etruscan period which dates back to the 6th century BC. Like many fashion trends that come and go on what seems like a whim, we are not sure why we suddenly have a passion for all things filigree. Lately, this delicate dance of metalwork seems to be catching our eye.

Francesca Bonato and Jacopo Janniello Ravagnan, the chic duo behind Hacienda Montaecristo, recently created a line of filigree jewels using age-old techniques crafted by local artisans in Mexico. These delicate gold washed silver creations feel like a mash up of Frida Kahlo meets Dolce & Gabbana style, resulting in the perfect gypsy look to show off this holiday season. India has also had a tradition of using filigree metalwork to create over-the-top jewels for the maharajas, while the artisans of Anatolia have been crafting metal into sinuous styles for the rich and fashionable for centuries.
