Filigree is an ornamental work made of very fine yarns and tiny metal balls, welded in order to compose a design. The metal is usually gold or silver, but bronze and other metals are also used. Filigree has been used in jewellery since ancient Greco-Roman times, and is still used in a wide variety of decorative objects.

Currently, most filigree pieces can be found in the Northern Region of Portugal, often used in the traditional wedding dress as a whole, and also in the feminine dress of the Minho folkloric ranches.
