Vintage Siam Sterling Jewelry

Popular from the 1950s into the 1970s, the silver and black Thai jewelry pieces were produced by many jewelry shops. Called "Niello" or "Nielloware", this jewelry is created by carving a design in the Sterling Silver. The carved sections are then filled with a sulfur/metals powder, and baked. The most popular design is of Mekkala, the Goddess of Lightning, who represents the Thai version (The Ramakien) of the Buddhist and Hindu Indian legend, Ramayama, about a prince, his wife, his parents (King and Queen of Siam), and the evil king of Ceylon.

This jewelry was often sent to the wives or girlfriends of American soldiers stationed in Viet Nam or Thailand during the Viet Nam conflict period.

Note the mark"Siam" was used on these jewelry items from the early 1930s through the 1980s. This term represents the "Thai craftsmanship community."
