Did You Know? The word "filigree" can be traced to the Latin word "filum," meaning thread or wire, and "granum," meaning grain or small bead. The Royal Irish Academy in Dublin contains a number of reliquaries and personal jewels that feature filigree as their most prominent and remarkable ornamentation.
