Thailand is a major source for rubies and sapphires, as well as an established cutting and setting center for all kinds of precious stones. Moreover, jewelry making facilities have expanded so rapidly in recent years that the country currently ranks as the world's second biggest jewelry exporter. Buyers have the choice of opting for individual gems, finished jewelry, or custom made items.

Good and inexpensive craftsmanship, combined with stranded gold prices, make Thai gold articles excellent value buys. Hand-crafted chains, bracelets, earrings, pendants and other articles are all widely available at the many specialized gold shops in Bangkok, as well as at jewelry stores.

Bangkok offers many opportunities to purchase polished gems. Rubies and sapphires are indigenous stones, but virtually all colored gems, as well as diamonds are available. Shoppers should exercise caution and know what they are looking for. Remember, there are no bargains in the gem business; also, good and cheap simply do not go together when it comes to precious stones. Instead, what a careful shopper can expect is excellent value for money.

In recent years jewelry-making facilities have expanded and today, cutting skills are matched by a creative flair in jewelry design and setting. Hence the shopper has a splendid choice of quality items from a wide price range. Alternatively, many leading jewelers will also accept commissions for custom-made pieces. In addition to jewelry, gemstones' pictures and other decorative items can also be found here.
