ALAHAS: Philippine Heritage Jewelry by Maria Angelica S Bermejo is now launched! Limited first edition copies now available at

Our mission is to carry the legacy of Filipino heirloom jewelry well into the future. Working with authentic pre-colonial to turn-of-the-century pieces, we revive old ways to bring new meaning to modern designs.

our standard

We thoughtfully create each piece to last a lifetime – handcrafted from solid gold and silver acquired from responsible, verifiable and honest sources.


Maria Angelica evokes the aura of the past in pieces made for the present. Our unique approach is an homage to Filipino ingenuity—mastering centuries of Philippine artistic tradition and making it our own.


Genuine heritage pieces are given new life in our selection of Revive jewerly, as we return the timeless glory of these rare, one-off vintage and even older antique designs to their most pristine.


Tapping into years of artisanal history, our Recreate selection houses the next generation of heirloom jewelry formed using traditional techniques, but made from new materials and in more contemporary designs.


Past meets present where we join authentic antique and vintage pieces with modern materials and styles; or match the best of the old with other historic pieces—revealing a new brand of contemporary Filipino jewelry.


The Recollect archive is a private assemblage of incredibly rare and historically valued artifacts used to inspire and inform design.
