A beautiful and dainty antique tambourine necklace from the Philippines from the late 1800s. It is made of silver and has recently been gold-plated. The tambourine necklace is a filigreed jewelry popular during the Spanish rule of the Philippines from 1521-1898. Aside from being used as an accessory, it was also a tool used to propagate Christianity as the tambourine beads were patterned after the rosary.

It is an heirloom piece so it was typical then to divide the beads amongst siblings which is why it is normal to find tambourine jewelry nowadays with missing pieces/components. This piece has been re-strung and freshwater seed pearls were added. Other than the pearls and the locks located near the pendant, everything else is antique.

It is in excellent condition and ready to be worn. This can be used for weddings ("something old"), special occasions and my personal favorite- over a plain t-shirt. :)

Necklace Length (without pendant): 28 inches (or 71.0cm)
Pendant Length (including "mariposa" or butterfly connector): 1.48 inch (or 3.75cm)
Pendant Length (EXcluding "mariposa" or butterfly connector): 0.86 inch (or 2.25cm)
Pendant Width: 0.79 inch (or 2.0cm)

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.

**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.
