Filigree Malta Information


Filigree in MaltaFiligree is the art of creating intricate jewellery pieces using precious metal threads, such as silver and gold. The first pieces of Filigree were said to be found in the Egyptian Pyramids dating back to some 5000 years B.C.

Filigree making is distinct to the Mediterranean basin, and Malta due to both its geographical location and its history has a long tradition in this craft. Filigree making has been passed from father to son for generations providing an income to several village families over the years.

Maltese FiligreeThe process of filigree starts by melting silver or gold granules in a high temperature. Upon melting, the metal is poured in moulds which produce ingots after cooling. The ingots are then pressed and stretched for several times thus producing wires of different thicknesses. The thicker wires are used to shape the outer frame of the design being crafted. Filling the outer skeleton involves a very intricate procedure: Two very fine threads are wound together in a shape of a rope after which they are flattened and heated. These are then cut out into small pieces. The small pieces are then hand-wound to produce circular shapes which are later placed within the outer frame and soldered together.

This is done by putting the objects into a rumbling machine in which they are left for several hours thus polishing the product. This traditional craft still survives today thanks to the tourist industry. In fact, today filigree is considered to be a work of art by many tourists who purchase a piece of filigree during their holiday in Malta.

All finished products are certified for authenticity and hallmarked accordingly by the Government Consul.
