Lanna Culture

Situated in the North of Thailand, the province of Chiangmai has an astounding natural beauty characterised by mountains and forests. The city of Chiangmai melds art, antiquities and the unique local Lanna Thai culture. Local jewellery has many different expressions, with beads, silver and jade prominently featured. Jade in particular is prized. The combination of quality raw materials and skilled craftsmanship produces distinctive and unique jewellery that reflects local influences.

The Chiangmai branch of Gems Gallery has been opened since 1993 and occupied a 2 acre site (8,000 sq.m.). It emphasizes jewellery produced by local craftsmen and in particular the use of the best genuine jade. More than 400 staff are at hand to provide service in the northern Thai style, allowing you to touch something of the Lanna culture. The branch also includes a shop selling local handicraft souvenirs, has a free pick-up service and is opened everyday from 8:30 am. - 6:00 pm.
