What is Thai Silver?
Thailand is most famous for the production of fine silverware and
jewelry, Northern Thai silver (Hill Tribe) is renowned for its high level of purity
(often up to 99.9%), and for its fine craftsmanship, typically featuring unique and
intricate ethnic detail. The detailing of silver designs native to Northern Thailand
incorporates many techniques, encompassing influences from ancient Hindu
metalworkers who migrated centuries ago.
Sterling Silver consists of 92.5% silver, and the remaining part consists of
mostly copper. This is the reason why Sterling Silver is popularly
referred to as 925 Sterling Silver or just 925 Silver.
Silver needs to be combined with other metals is that it is very difficult to make
designs with just pure silver, which is very soft and malleable. A bit of hardness
has to be introduced, by adding other metals such as copper. That’s
why jewelers are capable of making the most intricate and complex designs with
925 Sterling Silver.
