Filigree jewelry

The processing of filigree jewels follows the phases and rules of this ancient tradition. With the use of different machineries, we start melting pure silver ore, transforming it into very thin threads. This tiny threads re then entrusted to highly skilled artisans who, with their own hands, create small works of art.Because EFFE-ERRE make each single piece of filigree within the company, the customers have the opportunity to customize each product, according to personal tastes and needs.
EFFE-ERRE give particular emphasis to the jewels of the Sardinian, Abruzzo’s and South Tyrolean traditions.

Jewels of the Sardinian tradition
Filigree is an art that has a fortunate tradition in Sardinia, an island that has collected techniques from other Mediterranean countries to create its own, which still teaches today. A process requires patience and skill as it is miniature and has given rise to small works of art such as precious jewelry, wedding rings and ornamental brooches decorated with naturalistic and geometric motifs.

Jewels of the Abruzzo tradition
The Abruzzo goldsmith has suffered from foreign influence. The Lombard has created the first goldsmith shops in Abruzzo. The embroideries take up floral and magical-symbolic textures of the apotropaic tradition. The typical objects of the Abruzzo tradition are choker necklaces with filigree or embossed spheres and star-shaped medallions with filigree arabesques.

Jewels of the South Tyrolean tradition
The South Tyrolean goldsmith production finds its fulcrum in Cortina d’Ampezzo. Jewelry in silver threads representing the flowers of the Alps are emblems of this tradition, which dates back to the 18th century.
An increase of tourism, which already affected the mountain resort in the nineteenth century, has increased the demand for souvenir items, so much so that was opened a special school.
