Description

KAREN ethnic silver ring

The KAREN ethnic silver ring comes from the north of Thailand. It is one of our discoveries, during our last trip in the north of Thailand. This country is full of jewelry but rarely handmade. Only Karen jewelry, an ethnic group from the north of the country, is still made according to ancestral methods. The KAREN ethnic silver ring is made of 925 silver. The silver leaf is thick enough but remains flexible enough to be adjusted to different fingers. The design of the ring is made of braided silver.

925 silver, the material of your ring

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.
