Ana Relikaryo Cocktail RingRegular price $250.00
Our Ana Ring celebrates the rich and complex heritage of the Philippines. Handcrafted in gold filigree, an ornate and meticulous 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.
As this ring is handcrafted, each single piece is unique and slight variations from photos may occur
