Behind the Design of Our Filigree Jewelry
Learn More About Kendra Scott’s Signature Pattern
It’s the details that elevate the ordinary to the extraordinary. First used in 2015, our custom-designed filigree was inspired by Kendra’s love of architecture. As a patterned expression of our trademarked medallion, our filigree has become a signature accent for the Kendra Scott brand and is woven throughout our collections. Whether the embodiment of a piece, as with fan favorite Addie Gold Filigree Earrings, or peeking from behind semi-sheer gemstone settings, our modern interpretation of filigree is an homage to an ancient craft.
The History of Filigree
Filigree is an art form with roots in jewelry design dating back 5,000 years. Found in Mesopotamian and Egyptian cultures, the craft became popular during Roman times. In its truest form, filigree is composed of Gold or Silver wires interwoven to create a delicate, lace-like structure. We’ve nodded to this technique with feminine, modern designs in both jewelry and home décor.
Bringing Inspiration to Life
Our bracelets, rings, earrings, and more use filigree in artful, unexpected ways. For example, the classic Elisa Filigree Necklaces have been reimagined using this pattern. Even pieces without a filigree centerpiece still utilize the technique—just peek behind the gemstone on most styles to see for yourself, or find an entirely filigree piece with our Maggie Hoops. With filigree jewelry in a range of Gold, Silver, Rose Gold, and Gunmetal, we’re delighted to add unexpected and artful touches of beauty to your everyday.
