Where are your hammered silver earrings made?

Omyoki Thai jewelry is made in the northwest of the country, near Chiang Mai. This hilly area, close to the Burmese border, is home to the Karen tribes, renowned for their weaving skills and silver jewelry making. The Karen migrated a long time ago from Burma and brought a traditional know-how of their own.

Indeed, most jewelry made in Thailand are made by machine. Only jewelry made by the Karen tribes in northern Thailand are handmade and according to ancient traditional methods.

925 silver, the material of your earrings

The silver used to make the jewelry can not be pure 100%, because it would be too soft. In order to work it is added one or more alloy metals, most of the time copper.

The silver jewels in Europe and in most countries of the world are silver 925. It is the 1er silver title, it has minium content of 92,5%. This is also known as Sterling Silver, Sterling Silver 925. Sterling silver, for example, is composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. Sterling silver has been a silver category for jewelery in many countries since the XIIIth century.

Thai money is often purer than the world standard. It often contains 95 at 98% money, which allows a different job of money. Because purer silver is softer and more malleable, Thai silver jewelry is usually thicker.
