The term Filigree describes the ornamental and usually handcrafted work of small wires and metal balls, which are worked and welded together to form a design.
The most used metals are, above all, gold and silver.
The production of Filigree from precious metals, gold or silver, is certified twice: by the Contrastaria, which certifies the production of the piece in Silver and/or Gold, and the certification of the production method, which attests to whether it is completely manual or not.
Filigree production is concentrated in the north of Portugal, in Gondomar and Póvoa do Lanhoso.
One of the most famous drawings is the famous Coração de Viana (Heart of Viana), born in Portugal at the request of Queen D. Maria I.
