Chinese Sails Karen Silver Necklace

Seemingly as mysterious as the swooping sails on a Chinese sampan, this silver pendant is hung from a long and elegant silver chain. The very simplicity of its design and the finely wrought silver chain, show how meticulously the Karen hill tribes practice their craft in the mountainous region of Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand.

The Karen hill tribes’ skill and craftsmanship at making fine and distinctive silver jewellery goes back centuries. They painstakingly roll, shape and engrave their jewellery by hand, using traditional methods with the simplest of tools. The Karen people work with silver much purer than sterling silver (92.5%). Karen jewellery has a distinctive weight, matte sheen, and satin finish that only comes from using such fine quality silver. Read more about the Karen Hill Tribe
