The Gold of the Ancients Ivatan Jewelry by AMAMI seeks to revive and raise awareness about a long forgotten cultural heritage of the Ivatan people of Batanes, located in the northernmost tip of the Philippines. The Padijit has not been seen worn in over 100 years.
A symbol of status and wealth, the Padijit is a braided necklace made of gold wire that ancient Ivatans used as a ruff or collar worn around the neck. It is traditionally made by coiling a wire of the same thickness around a flat bamboo mould.
Like a golden embrace, this wire-woven statement necklace weaves elegance into even the simplest of ensembles.
