Complete your Filipiniana 'fit with beautiful and elegant layered ear lace punctuated with 7 Freshwater Palawan Pearls -- now in silver!
This ear lace is inspired by the bekelew that T'boli women wear. Usually a single (sometimes more) strand of beads with a beaded fringe that hangs around the chin, from one ear lobe to the other. Many other cultures in Mindanao have a version of this piece of jewelry too. The Manobo and Bagobo people's version is called bali-og, while the Blaan call it ulel. In T'boli culture in particular, the bekelew symbolizes femininity.
This Ear Lace is a minimal and modern take on the T’boli bekelew. No one pearl will look the same, because nature is gorgeous that way, but we have handpicked the roundest pearly whites.
