#WearYourHeritage with our Hinirang Letter Charm Necklace in Gold Filigree as a powerful statement of transformed beauty and cultural craftmanship.

Beyond aesthetics, this necklace tells a compelling story of innovation, turning 'imperfections' into something extraordinary. By repurposing salvaged tambourines, we've reimagined beauty in unexpected places, creating intricate tambourine necklaces – each one a unique narrative of renewal and creativity!

In Filipino, "Hinirang" means "chosen," reflecting the personalized and carefully selected nature of each necklace. This choice signifies a special connection between the wearer and the piece, resonating with the idea of selecting your 'hirang' – a person chosen from others, dear to your heart.

The artistry of gold filigree and granulation have 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 granules together to form beautiful heirlooms.

*Model is wearing our necklace on its shortest length at 16" long.

  • The necklace offers a personalized touch by providing initial pendants representing the 26 letters of the alphabet. 
  • Handcrafted by Filipino artisans in Ilocos using the rare art of gold filigree, a pre-Hispanic indigenous technique - indicating a commitment to craftsmanship and cultural heritage. 
  • Intended as heirloom pieces, colors will tarnish over time to develop a more antique look
  • Pendant: 985 pure silver coated in 24-karat gold; Chain: Sterling silver coated in 18-karat gold
  • Chain Length: Adjustable from 16" to 18"
  • Nickel-free and lead-free, suitable for sensitive skin
  • AMAMI is a social enterprise that works to revive endangered Filipino jewelry traditions while empowering and providing local artisans with sustainable livelihoods

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.
