A minimalist chain necklace with an understated gold filigree pendant, now comes with a pearl twist! The Padumna Pearl adds a touch of Filipiniana elegance and grace to your everyday.

Named after the Ilocano word meaning 'beside' or 'adjacent to', the Padumna bead was traditionally placed next to the Amami (Our Father) bead on rosary necklaces during the Spanish colonial period. Here, the Padumna is revived in a uniquely flat form and modern design, with concentric overlapping spindles reminiscent of a pinwheel in endless motion.

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.

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.

As this is made of 985 pure silver coated in 24-karat gold, this piece is more durable than traditional gold plated jewelry as there is a thicker layer of gold. It may still tarnish over time, giving it a more vintage look.

To help with long term preservation we recommend to reduce exposure to sweat and perfume and store within an air tight container or our custom AMAMI pouch provided with your order. 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.

If you intend to gift this item, care tips are provided with the package.
