After our tour of Wat Traimit and Wat Pho, we next moved on to the 7,200 sq. m. (1.8 acre) Gems Gallery International, an ISO certified gems gallery. Open in 1987, it is said to be the world’s largest jewelry and gems center. Here, we watched skilled, in-house Thai artisans cut, polish and set each precious stone to create exquisite pieces of jewelry.
Its eye-catching showroom also displays thousands of world-class natural gems (diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds, topaz, etc.) mined from Chanthaburi and Kanchanaburi provinces; pearls as well as unique bracelets, necklaces, rings, bangles, earrings and other jewelry masterpieces.
