Retro jewelry is highly collectible; with standouts from the houses of Boucheron, Van Cleef, and Lacloche. And even the simplest pieces of fine jewelry with good design fetch far more today than when they were first introduced.

Filigree is a style of jewelry that has been around since the ancient Greeks (roughly 2000 BC.) A filigree piece of jewelry is made out of thin pieces of metal that are looped tightly and then soldered at the base, producing little metal loops.
Gold, silver and platinum are used to make fine filigree jewelry.
Filigree gained in popularity again during the art deco period of the 1920s, and jewelry of that period often display flowery motifs.
