There was a time in Thailand when anything  could be ordered. Now there are plenty of limitations on design and size. Most goldsmiths will refuse to make a one Baht chain and others simply can not make classic designs that once were very common. Times are changing...fast. Now is the time to consider a purchase. Price is currently $890.00 per Baht (15.16 grams) as of May 2019.

May 2019

Our highly anticipated trip to the USA to attend the JCK Jewelry Show in Las Vegas was dashed due to the unanticipated two month wait to schedule the visa interview for my wife. Although she has lived in the US for several years and held a permanent residency, there no shortcuts here. The line starts back there! America has become a very popular destination for the Thai's it seems.

April 2019

For a while it looked like gold was going to the moon but things became relaxed geopolitically for a while and gold settled down to the past level. However, the strong Thai Baht and the weaker US Dollar still is influencing the gold chain prices. We have been so busy with our animal shelter, I'm lucky to produce a YouTube video once a month! But a new one will be finished by April 21st so please check it out. Go to our channel at "23kgold" on YouTube!

March 1, 2019

A weaker US Dollar and stronger Thai Baht is contributing to the continually increasing spot gold price in Thailand. Our price has increased only slightly in an effort to stimulate sales just before gold explodes in price. Gold has increased in price by over 10% in the last 6-months and may rise by a similar amount by the end of summer. (info by Kitco.com). This is the time to consider a Baht gold chain purchase for sure!

January 2019

When you're shopping for a 96.5% gold chain in Bangkok there are two significant factors that affect price. They are the current spot price of gold and the US Dollar to Thai Baht currency exchange rate. Right now the US Dollar is weakening and the gold price is up 2.6% for the month. So we have raised our prices accordingly. Look for higher gold prices in 2019.

November 2018

It appears the rains of the monsoon season have subsided and we now look forward to cooler temperatures in Bangkok. Spot gold prices have increased everyday for the past 10 days. We expect much higher gold prices should the US economy weakens at all. The economic boom has been the longest in history so be prepared. Smart to add high karat gold to your portfolio now. A wearable investment!

October 2018

Monsoon rains are in full swing now so the typical 1 hour trip to China town is taking two hours! And I live in Bangkok! Gold is at a multi month low right now but the US Dollar is weaker so the price of gold is roughly the same as it was a month ago. Had some Margaritas with Andy on his return visit to Bangkok and am now putting together my next You Tube video on some of the amazing customer jewelry purchased this month.

August 2018

Great time to buy Thai Baht gold as the prices are lower and the US Dollar exchange rate is favorable. We have already lowered our prices to stimulate sales.

We have added several new designs in the chain and bracelet categories. Andy's coming back for a visit in Sept so perhaps we can get another interview! Search You Tube under the name of "23kgold" to bring up all of our videos!

July 2018

We have found a source for exquisitely crafted 24K gold chains and we will be offering these 99.99% chains in a few link styles soon. We have received a reorder from a large jewelry chain in the East coast of the United States and we will be offering several of their best selling items on a page soon. Make sure you contact me on the current price...gold is in a volatile stage right now as the gold price and the US dollar exchange rate are fluctuating.

March 2018

On March 23, 2018, the President signed legislation to renew the GSP program through December 31, 2020. While legislation to renew GSP was enacted on March 23rd, the effective date of renewal is April 22, 2018.

 GSP-eligible entries will enter the U.S. duty-free on, and after, April 22, 2018. Because the GSP program’s renewal is retroactive, importers may seek refunds of duties paid during the lapse of GSP authorization. In accordance with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) instructions, importers who marked their GSP-eligible articles after January 1, 2018, with the applicable special program indicator (SPI) for GSP (“A” or “A+”) will receive automatic duty refunds without interest. 

In addition, for GSP-eligible articles that entered the United States during the lapse of GSP authorization without SPI code “A”, importers may request a GSP duty refund request to CBP. 

February 2018

The US Dollar has lost 3.9% of it's value here since the beginning of 2018 and this has impacted the price of gold jewelry for American buyers somewhat. Fortunately, the price of gold is still low and compensates for the weaker US Dollar. Our custom order prices are the  lowest on the Internet and will remain the best value for your purchase of a Thai gold Baht chain.

If you can navigate around all of this info you should take into consideration the sheer beauty and value of the Thai Baht gold chains and bracelets. Still hand made of 96.5% pure gold and truly one of the best gold jewelry values in the world today.

For over 18 years we have bought and sold Thai Baht gold from Thailand. We specialize in the sourcing of high quality 96.5% (23k) gold, Thai made, Thai Baht gold chains and Thai Baht gold necklaces, Thai Baht 23K gold bracelets, Thai Buddha Amulets with 18K gold frames, 18k gold earrings and Thai 96.5% gold clasps.


This is not a click and buy website so you won't find a shopping cart. Purchases are usually initiated with an email where you can describe the item you're interested in and we can get back to you with the current price including labor. In case you don't know, the price of a Baht Gold chain is updated several times a day. Once we quote a price for the gold chain or bracelet you want, we hold this price for you for a maximum of 24 hours. Once the actual funds are sent via PayPal or Bank transfer and we have access to the funds, we immediately purchase the physical gold required for making the item. If the price of gold then increases while the item is being made we have the physical gold to protect our price quote. More on this subject can be found on our "Ordering" page. 


Thai Baht 23K gold Bars

In Thailand Thai "Baht" gold chains are still made by hand. Talented Thai craftsmen work the almost pure gold into amazing designs acclaimed by the world as some of the finest gold jewelry available in the world today.

The Thai Baht gold available from 23kgold.com is considered traditional Thai style. Each chain is made of solid gold that is of 96.5% purity (a little over 23K). Thai gold is weighed by "Baht" weight. One Baht equals 15.16 grams or about 1/2 ounce. When you purchase a Thai Baht gold chain, Thai Baht gold bracelet or gold clasp in Thailand you are purchasing the item by the weight at the price of gold on that day PLUS the labor cost to make the jewelry.

You can easily calculate the value of a Baht gold chain by comparing the price of a lower karat gold necklace at your local shopping mall. Most gold necklaces sold in the United Sates for example are machine made and of 10K gold (41% gold purity) or at the most 14K (58% gold purity). One can quickly see the true value of the hand-made Thai Baht gold chain necklace in terms of cost per gram of almost pure gold. Remember, in order for the chain or bracelet to be considered "Baht Gold" it must assay to be over 95% pure gold



1-Year Thai Baht Gold Price Graph

Buy on the dips!



The price of Thai Baht gold fluctuates just like the international spot price of gold. The price of gold is reported to the gold shops in Bangkok several times a day. The left column of the graph shows the price of the gold in Thai Baht. The term "Baht" is also the name of the currency in Thailand so there is always some confusion regarding this. 

In addition to the cost of the gold you must also pay for the labor. The labor cost can vary depending on the design of the piece. Many goldsmiths these days will only make a design that is at least a 2-Baht in weight. Some goldsmiths will make a design as light as 1/4 Baht (3.79 grams) but they charge a substantial premium to make it. That's why the price per gram of a 1/4 Baht or 1/2 Baht chain is always higher than a heavier chain. 

Cost is also affected by the exchange rate of the currency used to buy the gold. Based on the graph do you think it's a good time to buy Baht gold?


Other acquisition cost
 In the United States the Generalized System of Preferences (G.S.P.) was renewed by the United States Congress and signed into law by the President on June 30, 2015 for a period of 2 1/2 years. This A-7113.1929 Harmonized Code is used on all of our documents related to the sale of gold necklaces and chains made in Thailand. This "Duty Free" treatment of high karat gold chains and necklaces is applicable ONLY to gold chains and necklaces. Gold bracelets from Thailand are NOT eligible therefore plan to be charged 5.4% duty on the declared value of any bracelet.





Our cost to send a Thai Baht chain via UPS Global Express is approximately $95.00. For security reasons and as required by the insurers the item must be packed in a small size box and then placed in a medium size box. Other security precautions are taken as well.

 Special  attention is given to the description on the invoice and waybill not to make it obvious that the contents are valuable. We do not cut corners or try to make an extra dollar here and there when it comes to the security aspect of shipping something as valuable as Thai Baht Gold.



We are Americans living in Thailand. We work with a very competent Thai staff in Bangkok. We have been in business for 17 years. In all of those years we have not learned much about website design or SEO techniques and we are certainly not wizards at e-commerce as almost anyone can tell. But we love what we do. We are really good at what we do. And we have a passion for conducting business from abroad in an honest and forthright way. Please see our customer "Testimonials" to get an idea of the spirit in which we conduct business. 

Thailand floods

The money that we earn completely funds our Bangkok animal rescue in Thailand. We rescue injured, sick, or abandoned cats and dogs from this very inhospitable environment. We nurture them back to health, take care of all medical issues, spay or neuter them and  then find forever homes for them in Thailand. 

We started the rescue during the "Great Thailand Floods" of 2011 when we witnessed the Thai people abandoning their homes and leaving behind all of their belongings including their pets so they could escape the rising water that eventually engulfed their homes and our home. By boat, my wife fed the animals who took refuge on the roofs of  flooded homes and factories.
