Most likely made in Meycauayan, Bulacan in the late 1950’s, this type of jewelry better known as “Rosetas” is the embodiment of the fine craft of Philippine traditional jewelry making. The particular type of setting has been handcrafted in the same manner as it would have been in the 19th century. This type of setting is known in Tagalog as “lutlot”, it is a very laborious procedure where the setting is filed and worked out of a solid piece of thick gold sheet, with every diamond being individually custom fit and set. “Rosetas” sets have been popular since the third quarter of the 19th century onward and they remain popular to this day. The beauty of this ornament is the fine craftsmanship most likely done by an older generation goldsmiths who were still familiar with this now dying art of traditional Philippine jewelry setting.
