Shine on with the Lucy Earrings! Featuring a delicate design inspired by the sun, the Lucy Earrings serve as a reminder that there is always hope, even on the darkest of nights. The sun will always, always rise again.
Handcrafted in gold filigree, a meticulous and rare technique perfected by the plateros of Ilocos Sur, every heirloom carries the proud story of our pre-colonial heritage and of fine Filipino craftsmanship. Because each piece is crafted in gold filigree (not engraved), it can take twoto three days to craft a pair of earrings.
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.
