Where do you get your jewelry?
This is a favorite question, but we can’t reveal all our secrets at once. What we can say is that antique jewelry has brought us far and wide, meeting different people across the Philippines (and even further!) all in the hopes of finding the most interesting pieces of heritage jewelry. But more than the beautiful finds, it’s the joy of discovery that we’d love to share with you—learning the personal stories, uncovering our history, and ultimately, starting your very own narrative with these treasures.
Why choose antique and vintage jewelry?
History speaks for itself—and like art, our one-of-a-kind antique and vintage pieces are windows to our heritage. There is a sophistication in older designs that modern styles cannot match. Through them, we learn the intricacies of our culture better, and only by exploring the why’s and how’s of our local jewelry traditions do we truly appreciate the incredible talent and work that went into creating these sentimental pieces. But our passion for heirloom designs goes beyond honoring the illustrious past—period jewelry is a toast to the future, time-tested to uphold proudly Filipiniana jewelry for future generations to come.

Easy Steps to Ordering Your Own Custom Jewelry:
We carry mostly pure solid gold and silver period pieces that bring a unique character and charm, earned throughout the years. They often arrive to us in good condition. However, considering their rarity and antiquity, there may be some pieces that bear inclusions or some form of wear and tear. Often, these conditions are part of the practices and traditions of the period from which the piece belongs, and their presence adds even more to the jewelry’s captivating appeal!
As much as possible, we try to keep vintage and antique pieces in their original condition. Upon a customer’s request, however, we can clean or replate pieces in 24k gold that can make the pieces look good as new.
Our custom-made pieces are made of either gold or sterling silver, which means they are delicate and can bend. Please be careful when moving them around. Just bend them back into shape when they get misshapen.
We, however, throw in complimentary non-tarnish more affordable stainless steel chain for immediate use, until you find a suitable necklace chain. To own.
We recommend removing the pieces when exercising, swimming, or taking a shower as to not affect the plating of silver products. Silver naturally tarnishes when worn and exposed to air, so it will be good to wipe them off after use and store them in a sealed plastic bag after use. While colors may tarnish, this helps achieve the heirloom appeal we so adore. For a fresh look, however, we offer repair and replating services. Feel free to e-mail us for quotes.
