Sterling Silver Filigree Hoop EarringsDesigner: Mathew Borg
These sterling silver filigree earrings are a work of art and represent a Maltese tradition. The craft of making jewelry from silver threads, filigree, is distinct to the Mediterranean basin. Malta, because its geographical location and history, has a long tradition in this craft. Filigree making is passed from father to son for generations. And this spectacular piece was made by a third generation filigree silversmith, Mathew Borg, in the town of Valletta, Malta. Mathew is a true artist and does exceptional work using traditional Maltese techniques. You will always feel special wearing these one-of-a-kind earrings.
