Each design is handcrafted from continuous pieces of filigree thread. The Chinese artisans who curl, twist and plait the metal threads to form these pieces are committed to preserving their country’s jewelry making heritage, and Tom’s design direction ensures a perfect marriage of historic skill and modern taste. We’re excited about the symmetrical earring based upon 17th century calligraphy and adorned with one freshwater pearl. We’re also featuring two asymmetrical scrollwork designs, and you can choose either rhodolite garnet or cubic zirconium embellishments. Who knew filigree could be so versatile?
