“To become a master at any skill, it takes the total effort of your: heart, mind, and soul working together in tandem.”
This quote best describes one of the unsung heroes of handcrafted jewelry, the Platero (local term for goldsmith).
A goldsmith's work is to make gold articles or accessories such as rings, necklaces, anklets, earrings etc. They use innovative tools and techniques to create pieces of jewelry which are not just luxury and part of our sense of style and fashion but also heirlooms which can be passed down from generation to generation.
Meycauayan has a great deal of goldsmiths who can create master pieces of jewelry. They put their heart into the craft that anyone who is the lucky recipient of their work can feel the love that a "platero" gave in making the piece. One can also see how much time was spent in the process of making just one piece. The level of creativity is set to the highest standard and quality.
Our goldsmiths are the finest of the finest. When a piece is made by a local goldsmith you can be sure that it's made with utmost care coupled with ingenuity, thus making it unique and special.
We believe in our local goldsmiths so much that we support them and respect their artistry by showcasing their work in the hopes that more and more people can be aware of their handcrafted jewelry. These jewelry are the perfect ingredient to complete what anyone who is a connoisseur or a collector already has. They are also good investment which never depreciate in value
We aim to foster the craft of making jewelry by hand so much that we want our local goldsmiths to continue making jewelry as their means of livelihood. After all, we also want them to hone the new breed of jewelry makers who can keep the craft alive in Meycauayan.
