Pairing your outfits with accessories from a Filipino jewelry brand is a simple way to elevate your personal style every day. Whether your closet is filled with athleisure and streetwear or dressy and glamorous clothing (or, let’s be real, all of the above) you can celebrate your Filipino heritage.
A few years ago, I started to wear earrings everywhere. If I was at work, in class, or even studying at home, I had earrings on. It was a way to inspire self-confidence and experiment with my style.
My life has shifted since 2020, but I still wear earrings as a way to hype myself up for work-from-home calls. When I wear my capiz shell earrings, I feel connected to the Philippines and the child I was when I left—she was whimsical and confident.
Whatever the outfit or occasion, there’s a lot to choose from when it comes to Filipino jewelry brands that complement your unique style. Consider the following as a starting point.
AMAMI: A Filipino Jewelry Brand For Your Classic & Romantic Wardrobe
Childhood friends Christine Tiu and Danielle Tan founded AMAMI, which collaborates with Filipino plateros (metalsmiths) across the Philippine Islands to craft intricate gold filigree jewelry.
AMAMI draws from the archipelago’s rich history of jewelry-making so you can proudly wear your jewelry everyday and eventually pass it on as cherished heirlooms.
Practiced for centuries in the Philippines, gold filigree, granulation, and -casting are artforms mastered by plateros. For their iconic filigree designs, plateros melt gold and silver into fine threads that are handwoven into delicate lace and floral patterns.
The artisans, through their designs, capture the beauty of the nature around them and honor their family legacies.
Every AMAMI piece embodies a love that transcends time. Let that inspire you as you get ready to face each day.
The wreath-like Loida Creolla Earrings can add a sweet and playful flair to the staple little black dress. Meanwhile, the Sampaguita Minimalist Necklace ushers in Spring vibes when paired with pastel hues.
Shop the AMAMI collection to find your next timeless keepsake and to help create sustainable livelihood for Filipino plateros.
Arete: A Filipino Jewelry Brand For Modern Glamour Dipped In Golden Sunsets
With a background in clothing, Filipina designer Mia Jeanjaquet started Arete to extend her creative vision into jewelry. By working with Filipino women artisans, together, they design earrings that summon island beauty.
Mia, as a jewelry designer, is excited by the landscapes, natural materials, and craftsmanship found on the islands. Arete has worked with raffia (dried palm leaves) in resin and woven rattan (dried vines) in the past. They’ve featured mother of pearl and baroque pearls in creative ways.
Arete uses imagery that calls us home.
The Rafia Cuadrado Studs, made with mother of pearl, add a glowing touch to your evening dress. You can also bloom with the feminine petals of the Caida Bloom Drop earrings. Pair them with a off-shoulder top and high-waisted shorts for an effortless ode to summer.
