Jewellery Glossary : Arabesque

Posted on 15/08/2012

When applied to jewellery the term “Arabesque” refers to a repeating pattern often including elaborate scroll work, floral and foliate forms. The term originates from 9th century Baghdad and these motifs are common in Muslin art and architecture.

This Ledo Arabesque Rhinestone Bracelet, composed of 9 articulated links in a pave set curlicue design is a perfect example.
