For example : can combine classic to contemporary or ethnic, depending on their individual design and pattern.
100 years ago, the peoples of the hill tribes of northern Thailand migrated from southern China to Burma, Laos, Vietnam and Thailand.
The main occupation of all these tribes is culture, and all tend to migrate whenever they feel the soil is exhausted.
Approximately twenty distinct tribes of semi-nomadic peoples, collectively called hill tribes, live in mountains along the Burmese and Laotian borders of northern Thailand.
The largest and most prominent are the tribes of the hills including the H'mong, the Akha, the Lisu, the Lahu, the Meo, and the Karen.
Culturally these tribes are not lacking interest because of their relative isolation, which allowed them to maintain customs almost unchanged and traditions dating for centuries.
Each tribe keeps its own culture, religion, language, art, and dress.
With neighboring Thailand and its modern and rapid development, it is difficult to say whether these tribes will continue traditional lifestyles or if they will not subsequently be absorbed into the surrounding Thai society.
A rich part of their cultural tradition is the making and wearing of silver jewelry.
What was once a sharp artistic skill in the tiny tribal villages in the mountains of northern Thailand, now that can be found produced in the factories of the second largest city of Thailand, Chiangmai.
On the street of Wualai in Chiangmai all the realizations of the silver objects and silver jewels are crafted.
Complex models inspired directly by tribes of hills, bracelets, earrings, necklaces and rings are now made by Thai goldsmiths.
Surprisingly enough, most of the hill tribes now prefer money to all other currencies; Women usually wear their wealth in voluminous and heavy necklaces and earrings.
The jewels of the hill tribes bought in northern Thailand are usually sold by the actual short-day weight.
