A big vintage gold-dipped silver tambourine necklace from the Philippines. This comes from the late 1950s to 60s. It is a stunning detailed necklace made more unusual because of the big "tamborin" bead size (about 12.5mm- refer to the 4th picture) with a "sinampagita" (small flowers) design. It comes with a showstopper "relicario" or reliquary pendant with the glass still intact.

Tamborin necklaces were devotional jewels patterned after the rosary during the Spanish rule of the Philippines from 1521-1898. Over time, the sequence of the beads were no longer followed and became very ornamental.

This necklace has a small spring ring lock so it can be opened on top like a regular necklace. It has been recently gold-plated. I had the bail thicken though so that it would be strong enough to carry the weight of the pendant. This item is in very good condition.

Pendant diameter: 2.36 inches (or 6.00cm)
Necklace length: 23.00 inches (or 59.00cm)
Weight: approximately 80 grams

I can offer a layaway plan for this item. A 30% non-refundable downpayment will be required for me to reserve the item for you. The balance should be paid in full within 60 days- we can work out a payment schedule and I will send you invoices for those payments. If the balance is not settled in 60 days, I would have to remove the reserve listing and sell the item. Please contact me if you would like this option.

*Please note that it would be typical for a vintage item to show signs of wear.

**Regular shipping will take 2-3 weeks (rarely up to 6 weeks) as these are coming from the Philippines. But for items like these, I suggest shipping with insurance which would take about 3 days to 2 weeks but with additional fees. Let me know if you are interested to take this option.

***Please send me an e-mail or convo (conversations) for multiple shipping and faster shipping options.
