What is the Filigree font?
Filigree, reminiscent of the delicate lace and jewelry produced in Europe in the 16th to 18th centuries, was inspired by the font Always, and by the way in which the threads (or filia) of the characters in Always intertwined.
It has a soft, wafty character. It is best used as a display font at a relatively large size. At too small a size the delicacy of the individual filaments will be lost. Best results also from a combination of upper and lower case characters. Using upper case characters alone will not look as good. Alternate characters and ligatures are also included. If your application program supports “kerning” then I suggest that you turn it on. Although not essential, this will enhance the spacing of the letters. More…
The font contains over 272 characters – (upper and lower case characters, punctuation, numerals, symbols and accented characters are present). It also includes a number of “open-type” characters – these enhance the flexibility of the font by providing alternatives that are used either at the discretion of the designer or are determined by the circumstances in which the font is used. It has all the accented characters used in the major European languages.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Filigree is that you get the license to use it leagally.
