In a perfect balance between tradition and innovation, history and modernity, an exclusive jewel conceals within it pleasures that are reserved for the one who owns it.
what could be rarer and more beautiful than a unique piece of jewellery?
No two pieces at Joalharia do Carmo are alike. Exclusively handmade, the Certified Filigree jewels with Portuguese contrast work exhibit complexity in the art of precision, a guarantee of its authenticity and a synonym of prestige and distinction.
Bearing a traditional design or a more contemporary look, where the Filigree is enhanced using sapphires or diamonds, Joalharia do Carmo today is a showcase of true Filigree. One of the most faithful representations of Portuguese folk culture is now presented to the world as the most important and distinctive symbol of Portuguese Jewellery at the only shop in Portugal that sells only Portuguese Certified Filigree.
Gold is unmatched when it comes to value, whether tangible or sentimental.
Portuguese gold is one of the noblest in the world due to its fineness (parts of fine gold per thousand in the alloy), with 800 parts gold per thousand, or 19.2 carats. The distinction is made through hallmarks added by the “Contrastaria”, an official body attached to the Portuguese Mint. A hallmark, impressed into the piece, certifies and gives information about the fineness of the precious metals used.
At Joalharia do Carmo, all gold pieces are handmade using pure 19.2 carat Portuguese gold, and with very fine wires of, at most, 0.22mm thick, highlighting the most distinctive and honourable in the art of Certified Filigree that Portugal has to offer.
In timeless classics or pieces with contemporary a design, Filigree at Joalharia do Carmo appears as unique, certified pieces, whose history time does not crystallize.
