Stunning traditional Sardinian jewellery was first created to be worn as an accessory with the exquisite men and women’s traditional dress that is worn for celebrations.
Sardinian tradition calls for a considerable quantity of jewellery, all made from gold or silver filigree with engravings or burin detailing: buttons, cufflinks, medallions, hair clips, necklaces, brooches, earrings, rings and pendants.
Filigree, created by weaving two extremely thin gold wires together, is the distinctive feature of Sardinia’s jewellery craft production and represents the image of women and fertility. It became widespread in Sardinia from Renaissance times onwards and between the 18th and 19th centuries was a highly important detail in men and women’s clothing, especially during celebrations.
Sardinian jewellery is often embellished with coral or small pearls.
