Karen Silver Turtle Medallions Necklace

Suspended from double strands of smooth suede strings, these fine silver medallions express eloquently the skill and craftsmanship practiced by the Karen hill tribes from the mountainous region of Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand. Almost miniature in appearance, the intricate carvings on these medallions, including a fun turtle decoration, have to be seen to be believed.

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
