Thailand has been the center of trade in South East Asia for hundreds of years. Located in the middle of Burma, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and China, Thailand has had a unique history. Safe during the World Wars and the Vietnam War, Thailand has been a neutral zone to military bases, economic trade and business development. Led by his Royal Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, through his monarchy of 68 years, it has always been a priority to develop workers, peace and sustainability.
Being located in the center has it's advantages. For over 80 years Thailand has been at the heart of the modern world jewelry trade. Gemstones or precious metal merchants congregate to trade merchandise harvested or acquired. Because of this Thailand has gained a great amount of cumulative experience in Jewelry all from different fields within the industry. Over years workers' skill and expertise is developed through manufacturing knowledge and even passed down from generation to generation.
