Let it all dangle with the beautiful Amami Tambourine Earrings. Handcrafted in gold filigree, a meticulous and rare technique perfected by the plateros of Ilocos Sur. Every heirloom carries the proud story of our pre-colonial heritage and of fine Filipino craftsmanship.

Because each piece is crafted in gold filigree (not engraved), it can take 2 to 3 days to make a pair of earrings.

The artistry of gold filigree craftsmanship has been practiced by native plateros for centuries. The platero begins by melting blocks of gold or silver, repeatedly hammering and cooling them until they become fine and delicate threads. The threads are carefully shaped by hand into "kalado" or lace-like patterns inspired by nature. To craft more intricate pieces, the platero individually welds small drops together to form beautiful heirlooms.

  • Handcrafted by Filipino artisans in Ilocos using the rare art of gold filigree, a pre-Hispanic indigenous technique
  • Made of 985 pure silver dipped in 24-karat gold
  • 4.4cm in height
  • French clip closures
  • Intended as heirloom pieces, colours will tarnish over time to develop a more antique look
  • Nickel-free and lead-free, suitable for sensitive skin

As with any gold plated jewelry, AMAMI jewelry may tarnish over time, giving them a more vintage look.

For better preservation, reduce exposure to sweat and perfume and store within an air tight container or our custom AMAMI pouch provided to you. We recommend not to wear your piece under the shower.

Once your piece has aged, if you prefer the most vibrant look of gold, you may obtain gold replating service from your local jewelry shop.

To open the lock of your earrings, simply gently lift the post upwards first before pulling the latch towards you, instead of pulling the latch directly straight away. It should not be difficult to unlock and should open effortlessly.
