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.
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.
