Precious Gemstones Bangkok
Why Do All Precious Gemstones Come from Thailand?
Thailand and Bangkok in particular, has positioned itself as the International Gemstones and Jewelry Hub and with good reason in that the Precious Gemstones Bangkok Industry has been an integral part of this. With resources within and all around in neighboring countries as well as Bangkok being central to many mines and other regions for importing, manufacturing and shipping. The Kingdom of Thailand is also endowed with its own Precious Gemstone Resources. Sapphires have been mined in Kanchanaburi, Chantaburi, SI Saket, Ubon Ratchathani, Prae, Petchabun and Sukhothai. Rubies have also been mined in Chantaburi and in Ubon Ratchathani.
Factories exist in the Chantaburi, Kanchantaburi and Bangkok areas, that manufacture the rough precious gemstones and the Thai cutters are specialists that are skilled and dedicated and these skilled master artisans posses more abilities to cut the Precious Gemstones than skilled craftsmen in India and in other countries. The artistry of Thai master artisans has intrigued men and women around the world for its exquisite, delicate splendor and beauty for many years. The extensive skilled craftsmanship has passed through several generations and is still very much intact today.
In 2015 Thailand looked to become the world’s gem and jewelry trading hub by 2020 and was already so in many ways. With Myanmar’s continued growth in the market and rich variety of colored Gemstone resources and with the help of the ASEAN Economic Community creating more opportunities for Thailand-Myanmar trading of colored gems, it has been enhanced even more. Cambodia also produces much of the colored gemstone rough in the region which passes through Bangkok for manufacturing and processing and to the world.
With such an honored and secure role in the economy of Thailand, the Thai government set goals on increasing Gemstone and Jewelry exports which include the precious Gemstones Bangkok Industry. Tariffs have even been removed for rough gemstone material imported to Thailand.
Professionalism Amongst Bangkok Gemstone Dealers
The Gemstones Hub of Bangkok has been here for many years and is full of honest and devoted Jewelers and Gemstone sellers and Wholesale Suppliers. With the story of the old Bangkok Gem Scam, just be advised that there is a legitimate method to do business here instead and still find great deals. The integrity and professionalism among the Bangkok Gemstone Dealers and Jewelers has gone back many years plus the years of trust and reliability have put these Bangkok Gem Dealers where they are today. Even the Thai Government watches over the industry here to assure its honesty. Testing Labs are also located in this area to verify and certify the gemstones that you purchase here.
The SIlom, Bangkok area is home to hundreds to a thousand or so perhaps of small to medium to large Jewelry Businesses and Gemstone Businesses, and selling to locals and travelers and other buyers around the world. Some sell retail and others supply Wholesale Gemstones to the industry. You will see the small to large shops and buildings in the Bang Rak area on Silom Road and within the 59 Story Jewelry Trade Center Building Tower building on Silom Road. This is the 4th tallest building in Bangkok and from the ground floor up to the higher levels of the tower you will find Jewelry and Gemstone and Crystal Shops and the Precious Gemstones Bangkok Offices and Semi Precious Gemstones Bangkok Offices that house Wholesale Gemstones Supply companies ad small factories and even the Jewelry Trade Association Office.

Which Precious Gems to Buy from Bangkok and Why?
Let’s start with Ruby because it is the King of Gems in Thailand and Thailand is the King of Ruby, and in 1990 Thai Ruby took the market. Now with the addition of the much sought after Myanmar Pidgeon Blood Red Ruby and our Mozambique and Africa and other sources worldwide, we have what you need here.
Sapphire is also something that Thailand is King of with it’s own resources and because much more of the Sapphire Rough is imported, manufactured and heated here. Thailand Gemstone Factories have been in possession and skilled in the use of the latest technologies for a long time and continue to improve in gemstone heating and treating technologies. Unheated Sapphire Rough material is also available from Sri Lanka, here in Bangkok.
