Thailand is known as one of the largest jewelry and gem traders in the world. The country is known for producing some of the most beautiful rubies and sapphires. In Phuket the jewelry and gem stone business thrives as Thai craftsmanship is evident in the quality of work in this trade.
Several of the largest jewelry stores are included in many tours in Phuket and they are quite fascinating with thousands of pieces of jewelry and gems on display.
Pearls are farmed and can be found off Phuket and are also mounted as jewelry and sold in many shops.
