Silver – Applications and Origin

Silver is found nearly worldwide, but the major producers are located in South America and Mexico. This ore is mined together with other useful metals such as copper and lead. They occur naturally in the same spot, after which the miners chemically separate the metals.

This precious metal has applications in many industries next to artisan silver jewelry production, from medical wound dressings to electronics and photography.

We all know the quality label Sterling 925, which stands for a minimum guaranteed percentage of silver content in your artisan silver earrings. But silver alloys can vary in their precious metal content, from a few percentiles up to solid silver. Because of its natural characteristics, sterling silver is by far the most commonly used. All our Thai silver earrings are guaranteed sterling silver or higher, ranging from 92.5 to 98% pure silver content.

The Wualai Silver Merchants

Wualai Silversmith Village, aka Ban Sri Suphan, is home to the world-famous silver temple. Here, artisan smiths produce artisan silver wares of excellent quality, with unique designs characteristic to the Lanna region.

Before 1957, most of the villagers on Wualai Street were full-time farmers. Their occupation as silversmiths was, at first, a mere secondary activity. Almost every house had a small blacksmith shop on the premises, which was fired up in the evenings or on special occasions. They mainly produced table- and temple wares.

Over time, a few families upheld these traditions and turned them into a full-time artisan profession. Wualai silver production now also includes accessories, decorative elements, architectural ornaments, personal care items, and of course our Tribal Silver Earrings.

If you’re looking for a matching pendant or bracelet, we’ve got you covered! The combination of precious stones and silver is also exquisite, as you can see from these cute cabochon silver pendants.
