Dainty gold-chain necklaces are undeniably timeless. Worn alone, they’re delicate and sophisticated, but when layered, they give off a more youthful and trendy vibe that can amplify any outfit. So it comes as no surprise that there are a number of local online shops that offer a variety of designs to suit any style—from edgy chokers to single pendant chains. And since we’re all about supporting small Filipino brands, here are a few shops that are worth checking out to satisfy your minimalist jewelry fix.
Tala by Kyla
Obsessed with statement pendants and bejeweled chokers? Tala by Kyla’s selection of handmade and dreamy pieces are a perfect addition to your collection of bijoux. Their designs are fun and full of childlike whimsy. Our current favorites are their pressed flower and resin butterfly pendants that look like they came straight out of your grandmother's trinket box!
A brand we spotted on Rei Germar and Camille Co, Anza Studios offers beautifully simple fine jewelry from 14k solid gold necklaces to thin single band rings with delicate diamonds. Their best-selling necklace styles are the Alegria and Valentia, and we can definitely see why!
A favorite of Instagram girls like Ashley Colet and Yanna Cowper, Penny Pairs was initially known for their fun and classic earrings but then started offering necklaces, too. Their 18k gold-plated Lucia and Sofia styles give you that instant layered look you can easily add to any outfit.
A well-loved local brand for their colorations with cool girls like illustrator Soleil Ignacio and Kimi Juan, Modern Myth offers unique handcrafted jewelry for the modern fashion gal. Their latest collection called Second Skin is perfect for anyone who adores barely-there jewelry that you can wear alone or pile on. Trust us when we say, we’re adding a lot to our cart!
Glam meets austere in Suki Jewelry’s romantic designs. The brand is known for their sophisticated designs and use of colored gems, but their Barely There! chain capsule collection includes the most delicate gold chokers you could ever want.
The Canvas Personalized
A brand we’ve received multiple comments about in our #PrevYOULoveLocal Instagram post, The Canvas Personalized specializes in, you guessed it, gold-plated and Sterling Silver custom necklaces. If you want your name spelled out in a gold and hung on a chain, this brand is worth checking out! They also offer a number of font styles to choose from if you’re particular about the design!
