The silversmith of Siamese and/or Thai jewelry is special and appealing. Siamese silver jewelry found today in the collectible market is mostly "niello" or "nielloware" style, created by carving out areas of the silver and baking a sulfur/metals powder in the carved out areas. The design often displays Mekkala, the Goddess of Lightning, and represents the Thai version of Ramayana, an ancient Sanskrit epic from a Hindu religious tale, which had a profound impact on art and culture of Thailand.


Special requests for polishing, sizing and shipping MUST be requested through the Ruby Lane site, preferably in the comment section when placing an order. Requests through email may not be received.
