For centuries, many Thai Buddhists have believed that carrying Thai amulets, such as Buddha Images, Luang Phor (Thai monks), or Gods, gives them luck and protection. They will never leave home without it. The use of Thai amulets is to avert danger, to dispel evil, to protect from disease. It is believed that Thai amulets will help one to gain great wealth, fortune, charm and success while at work or business. Usually, Thai amulets can be cast from metal or carved out from a piece of wood, ivory, or even made of powder of many different mixtures of ingredients that are pressed in a mould and baked to form the shapes. After molding, they will be chanted by monks, in order to give luck to those who will wear the amulets. It is important that Thai amulets be treated with respect by wearers.

Besides giving luck and protection, Thai Amulets can be worn like a piece of your jewelry set after covered with a gold or precious-metal case (frame). In this case, Thai amulets will be called Thai amulet pendants, Thai amulet jewelry, or Thai amulet pendant jewelry which makes wearers more attractive and charming.


Elements of Thai Amulet Jewelry
1) Gold Case (Gold Frame):
Gold cases are used to protect and honor the amulet, so wearers can preserve the amulet for future generations. At the same time, wearers also can enjoy the beauty of Thai amulets as gold jewelry. High gold purity, such as 22k, 23k, and 24k, are considered too soft for the cases of Thai Amulet Jewelry. Some sellers try to boast that their Thai amulet pendant jewelry are made from such high gold purity, but in fact it is impossible. Although, they can make it, their Thai amulet pendant jewelry is very likely to be too fragile for daily use.

2) Famous Amulet:
Many Thai amulets are made from copper or silver, and plated with 24k gold while some are made from solid gold. Thai amulets are normally blessed or enchanted by Thai monks.

3) Cubic Zirconia, or other gem stones (Optional): Cubic zirconias (synthetic diamonds) or other kinds of gem stones are sometimes used to decorate Thai amulet jewelry, in order to make Thai amulet jewelry more charming, sparkling. Generally, cubic zirconias (CZs) are more popular than diamonds because their price is much cheaper than real diamonds.

Thai Amulet Jewelry Buyer's Guides
1) The age and the fame of amulets and
 the history of the people who have worn the same amulet in both peace and battle, all enter into the pricing. However, it is uneasy and too expensive to obtain famous or old amulets, so almost all of amulets used to make Thai amulet jewelry are new, inexpensive but genuine. Buying an Thai amulet pendant jewelry is personal interest, so you do not have to shop by price. Choose an amulet pendant by your personal feeling toward the amulet. Let your heart be the judge. For, buying an amulet, thinking that it is more expensive it is better is not necessarily correct.

2) The purity of gold case is another important factor. Higher karatage of gold purity in amulet jewelry cases results in higher price of amulet jewelry. For making durable and naturally golden amulet cases decorated with gemstones, 18k gold is strongly recommended.


3) The type and quality of gem stones are also a vital factor that can make your amulet pendants more charming than others. When buying cubic zirconia amulet pendant jewelry, you can look at the size and the clarity of the stone. Top quality cubic zirconia stones should have beautiful fire and brilliance, while lower grade cubic zirconia stones are no different in appearance than glass. There are many different colors of cubic zirconia stones which are available in many shapes and sizes. Top quality cubic zirconias (CZs) from reputed producers, such as Swiss Signity, are considered to be the best diamond look-alike ever developed because they are cut to standards equivalent to those set for the finest-cut genuine diamonds.

4) The quality of craftsmanship
on Thai amulet jewelry is the last factor. Quality craftsmanship of Thai amulet pendant jewelry can make them more outstanding than others with lower quality.

Thai Amulet Jewelry Protection & Care
Take the following steps to protect amulet pendants from damage: Apply all hair spray, fragrance, and other spray cosmetics before putting them on. Sprays dull the surface of your amulet pendant jewelry and may contain chemicals that can damage the finish. Store each piece of amulet pendants in a flannel bag, or wrap each piece separately in flannel or soft fabric. Separately keep each of your amulet pendants in a fabric-lined box for protection. Never throw your pendant jewelry into a jewelry box where it can get scuffed or scratched. Remove your amulet pendants when doing heavy work. With these tips, your amulet pendant jewelry should last for many years.

To keep your amulet pendant looking its best, follow the cleaning procedures below every few months, or as needed: Clean your amulet pendant jewelry with warm and soapy water and a soft brush. Never use an ultrasonic cleaner, strong detergents, ammonia, or alcohol to clean your amulet pendant jewelry. Clean so gently as not to loosen any stones or settings. Rinse thoroughly to remove all traces of soap. Soap dulls the luster of any piece. Dry gently with a soft, clean towel to remove excess water. Leave to dry air for several hours. Be sure to dry the gem stones to keep its brilliance and shine.
