To buy filigree means to purchase a product of an ancient Russian craft. This is the pinnacle of jewelry art. The craft is the manufacture of household items from wire. Only precious metals - gold and silver are used for wire.
Buy Russian filigree
Russian filigree technique consists of two parts:
- Scan (weave).
- Grains (rolling balls or grains of metal).
The base is made using a scan. Miniature balls or grains are soldered to it - also made of precious metal.
Depending on the school, other techniques may additionally be applied - using:
- Mother of Pearl;
- Window enamel;
- Precious and semi-precious stones.
The technique is extremely complex, and the cost of the initial raw materials is high. Therefore, almost all products manufactured in Russia were supplied to the royal court or to the laurels. The modern Kazakov filigree is also unique, the price it fully corresponds to the quality.
By the beginning of the 20th century, it became possible to produce wire by the factory method. You can buy now:
