Jewellery Shops
Thailand is one of the world's largest exporters of gems and ornaments, rivalled only by India and Sri Lanka. The International Colorstones Association (ICA) relocated from Los Angeles to Bangkok's Chan Issara Tower a few years ago, and the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) has established a bourse in Bangkok - two events that recognize that Thailand has become the world trade and production centre for precious stones. The biggest importers of Thai jewellery are the USA, Japan and Switzerland.


Although rough stone sources in Thailand itself have decreased dramatically, stones are now imported from Australia, Sri Lanka and other countries to be cut, polished and traded here. There are over 30 diamond-cutting houses in Bangkok alone. One of the results of this remarkable growth of the gem industry - in Thailand the gem trade has increased nearly 10% every year for the last 15 years - is that the prices are rising rapidly.

If you know what you are doing you can make some really good buys in both unset gems and finished jewellery. Gold ornaments are sold at a good rate as labour costs are low. The best bargains in gems are jade, rubies and sapphires. Buy from reputable dealers only, unless you're a gemologist.

The biggest gem centres in Thailand are Kanchanaburi - these areas are where the Bangkok dealers go to buy their stones. The Asian Institute of Gemological Sciences (Tel. (02) 513-2112; fax 236-7803), 484 Ratchadaphisek Rd. (off Lat Phrao Rd. in the Huay Khwang district, north-east Bangkok), offers short-term courses in gemology as well as tours of gem mines for those interested. You can bring gems here for inspection but they don't assess value, only authenticity and grading.

Gem Markets
The districts of Bo Rai and Khao Saming in Trat province have been developed as the region's major gem mining industry, specially Bo Rai is noted for being the site of the world-famous "Tab Tim Siam" or King Ruby. The gem market of Bo Rai at Hua Tung Market takes place between 7.00-10.00 A.M. and Khlong Yo Market from 1.00-3.00 P.M. Other markets such as Nong Bon Intersection, Ban Sa Yai Market Ban Nonsi  and Ban Ta Ngam open whole day long.
