The high relief texture created by cannetille (spiral filigree) and granti (granules or granulation) came into fashion in the mid 19th century. This innovation in jewelry technique made it possible to create ornate finishes and intricate styles while using less gold in the production process. This Victorian crescent moon and star is ornately adored with cannetille and granti as well as crisp lines of twisted gold wire.
