The Cuts are Done Here by Experts,

The country of Thailand has been home to many generations of Thai master jewelry and gemstone artisans and is a cutting hub for all types of gemstones. Thai craftsmen are considered to be the world’s experts in the cutting of Burmese Rubies and Thai Sapphires as well as all other gems with precision.

The Treatments are Processed Here,

With the known process of producing the deepest hues and brightest most desired gemstones, treatments are a necessary step. Heat treatment and irradiation and other treatments. These treatments are done to increase color and/or clarity in Sapphires and Topaz and others, to glass fill Rubies, oil Emeralds or create lower cost Yellow Sapphires all as required by the market.

Thailand is also home to many experts in these treatments and use the latest methods and equipment and processes. When you buy gemstones in Thailand, be sure to ask if it is a natural or treated gem and ask for a certificate or acquire one from a local lab to verify if you like. Businesses like ours will always disclose what was done in the process and many are as ked for by the clients themselves who know the increase in value from it.

Bangkok is the World’s Gemstone Hub

Silom Bangkok Thailand is where nearly all gemstones pass through either for selling here or for treatment or for cutting and manufacturing from the raw material in factories like ours here in Bangkok (and in ours in Chantaburi, Thailand).  This is where many buy gemstones in Thailand.

The Jewelry Trade Center is a mega structure and 59 story tower full of Retail and Wholesale Precious and Semi-Precious Gemstones. Many small to large Gemstone and Jewelry Businesses are housed here as well as smaller factories and the offices of many companies like ours as Wholesale Gemstone Suppliers. You will also find gemstone testing labs within the complex to have your purchases tested and certified if you like.

Surrounding the Jewelry Trade Center Tower are many other Gemstone and Jewelry businesses both small and large. Along Silom road and in the surrounding area you will see many signs for local shops and the larger buildings and all nestled among other trendy restaurants, stores, hotels and clubs.
