crispinvalentine Worn @ adorned by the #bride & #groom of the #peranakan race people or #straits settlement in a #wedding, usually #lavish. Their #lifestyle is affluent & using #gold is by choice. The various elements of Straits Chinese jewellery from the wedding pieces to more day-to-day ornamental ones. The approach is quite thorough, literally from “head to toe” starting from ornamental hair pieces like cucuk sanggol (hair pins) and the anting-anting (dangling earrings), further down to the rantays (chains and necklaces), lockets and pendants, kerosangs, brooches, cincins (rings), tali pinggang (belts), gelang tangan (bracelets and bangles) down to the gelang kaki (anklets). #peranakan #peranakanpride #peranakantiles #peranakanchinese #peranakaninspired #peranakanearrings #babanyonyastyle #babanyonyamelaka #babanyonyaheritage #regram #resplendant 2d

crispinvalentine Peranakan culture is often described as a colourful culture. From the juxtaposition of vibrant hues and motifs that adorn the ravishingly beautiful kebayas and kasot manek, to the amalgamation of flavours and aromas from various ethnicities present in the plenitude of dishes both savory and sweet which defines what we know of today as Peranakan cuisine, the Baba-Nyonya heritage has often astound and impress upon many as one which is lavishly extravagant and vivaciously decorated. And speaking of being decorated, one cannot help but be in awe of the exemplary levels of intricacy and craftsmanship found in Peranakan jewellery, especially amongst old antique pieces. From the sanggols (hair pins) to the gelang kakis (anklets), Peranakan ladies in the past, be it the young nyonyas to more matured bibiks were often found “embellished” from head to toe quite literally.
