Original Portuguese Traditional Filigree Jewelry - Handcrafted
The Portuguese filigree is the ancient art of "golden" the women from the minho region of Portugal, particularly the ones from Viana do Castelo. The exquisite jewelry pieces created with this technique have long been used as valuable accessories for special ocasions, being an integral part of and enriching the traditional Portuguese costumes of Minho and Douro Litoral, beeing the most famous ones from Viana do Castelo.
The Heart of Viana, seen in pendants and earrings, is the "mythical" and most recognized piece of the Viana tradition. As other traditional pieces, it is highly worked in filigree, and is so meticulous and delicate that almost looks unreal.
Portugal's filigree unique look comes from its people's temperament - representing themes close to their heart, as religion and love, nature and sea - having become an important part of the country's luxurious heritage jewelery, as it represents its history, culture and tradition.
All our jewelry has the Official Assay Office Punch insuring the manufactured metal and fineness. This mark is applied in all pieces by The Portuguese Mint and Official Printing Office, that provides the guarantee by checking the fineness of the pieces, displayed in thousandths. A fineness of 925 - the one used in our pieces - means that in 1000 units of mass of the alloy, 925 units are pure precious metal.
