The original use of this necklace (Pangalapang) was to be worn by men. However, old photos show that some women wore it as well. Symbol of social status, it showed the owner's capacity to acquire raw materials from the coast. These necklaces were made to the east of Ifugao by the Mayaoyao. But there also exist smaller versions made by their neighbours in Kalinga.
