A peineta, or sometimes called payneta in Tagalog, is an ornamental comb that Filipinas wore in their hair during the Spanish colonization, sometimes with a veil.

Handcrafted in gold filigree, a meticulous and rare technique perfected by the plateros of Ilocos Sur. 

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.
