With the rise of the East as a major world center for technology, business, and increasingly, culture, more and more tourists are pouring into China, Singapore, Japan and Thailand every year. And if you are one of those millions of Western tourists making your first trip to the East this year, chances are you are looking for that one special souvenir to take home, as a way to remember the trip and add a little Asian flair to your home or wardrobe. When you visit Thailand, jewelry is the best souvenir you can purchase. Affordable, yet high quality, and sophisticated yet small enough to fit into your luggage, made-in-Thailand rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings are one of the most sought-after items by American and European tourists.
However, when you do go to find your special Thailand engagement ring, use caution. Unfortunately, the Thailand jewelry industry is not very well regulated, and many Thailand jewelry stores are little more than fronts for scams and cons. If you want to visit a Thailand jewelry store, either go with a reliable tour guide, or ask a reputable local like the hotel concierge to recommend a store he or she trusts. If you are looking for a major purchase like a Thailand engagement ring, make sure to use a credit card with a good consumer protection plan, like American Express. Like anytime you buy diamonds, ask any Thailand diamond dealer for a reliable diamond certification before purchasing. But there is a lot more to Thai jewelry than just Thailand diamonds—Thailand is also a world-famous center for gemstone cutting. You can get beautiful rubies and sapphires at great prices directly from the cutting centers, but beware that many of these are treated stones, destined for use in lower-priced jewelry, and are not worth nearly as much as untreated gemstones. Before buying anything, carefully write down the exact details of the diamond or gemstone you are considering, and do a quick Internet search to see what a stone of that caliber is really worth.
