SIZE OF GEM & JEWELLERY INDUSTRY

Bangkok has been called the Venice of the East, the City of Angels and the Eternal Jewel City. Whatever name you use for Bangkok, you’ll be describing an exciting city that magically mixes the ancient and the modern. You’ll find century-old canals next to towering skyscrapers, floating markets near ultra-luxury shopping squares and performances of traditional dance steps away from chic dance clubs. Helping to drive this economic and cultural powerhouse is the gem and jewellery industry.
