The Buwan Capiz Choker invokes memories of childhood sleepless nights when we'd look up at the buwan (moon) and dream of big things to come. This elegant piece features brass and an elegant pendant crafted from organic Capiz shell, individually cut and shaped by talented jewelry artisans in Cebu.

Inspired by nature and the bountiful islands of the Philippines, the Islander Collection by Island Girl is made with genuine shells and natural materials, sustainably sourced from Cebu and its surrounding islands with minimal impact to the environment.

The shells are first transluscent in their raw form and baked, transforming into white shells. The artisans then carefully coat each piece in a layer of resin to better preserve the natural luminescence of the Capiz.

As materials are sourced from nature and crafted by hard working hands, each piece features 'intentional imperfections' - variations in exact size, cut, colour, texture, and patterns. This adds to the individuality and unique story of each piece.
