Every day (and outfit) is made sweet and romantic when wearing the Loida Creolla Earrings. These gold earrings are a modern take on the traditional "hoops" (creollas) worn by Filipino women in 1800s Philippines.
As future heirlooms, these earrings carry the proud story of our pre-colonial heritage and of fine Filipino craftsmanship. The intricate flourishes and seven hearts of gold are created by plateros (goldsmiths) in Ilocos Sur through the timeless craft of metal-casting.
The Loida Creollas come into its iconic shape when molten silver is poured into a mold (a.k.a. cast). Once cooled, plateros finish by refining each detail and dipping the earrings in gold. Because each piece is made using traditional techniques, it can take 2 to 3 days to craft a pair of earrings.
