Filipino jewelry from the colonial period

The Philippines had such beautiful colonial styles during the 1800s, this is only a glimpse into the world of the past when women were adressed as "Señora" and gentlemen rode on kalesas (horse carriages). I absolutely love the beauty and glamour of it all, and it's a part of our culture that really should be cherished.
