 This is not a click and buy website so you won't find a shopping cart. Purchases are usually initiated with a phone call to us 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 Thai Baht chain is updated 5 times a day. Once we quote a price for the gold chain or bracelet you want, we hold this price for you for a minimum 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 gold required for making the item. So if the price of gold then increases 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

Above photo: two 1-Baht bars and one 5-Baht bar

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 evaluate the value of a Thai 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. 

 

 

5-Year Thai Baht Gold Price Graph

Thai 23k gold price chart

 

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 about 5-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 as we mentioned before. 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 of a 1/4 Baht or 1/2 Baht chain is always a higher per gram price. 

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 two-years. This A-7113.19 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. 23K Gold bracelets are not eligible therefore plan to be charged 5.4% duty on the declared value of the bracelet.

 

 

SHIPPING & INSURANCE

 

 

"The World On Time" is the FedEx slogan. This is the box you will receive. But is FedEx shipping in and of itself enough? No it is not. In fact, FedEx does not insure gold jewelry for more than $500 and will simply refuse a shipment if the invoice indicates a gold purity over 18K. That is the International policy of FedEx. A 3rd party Insurer must be used to insure the contents. Every Thai Baht gold chain necklace or Thai Baht gold bracelet is fully insured by UPS or BRINKS to make sure the shipment not only arrives "ON TIME" but is completely insured if it doesn't. Our cost to send a Thai Baht chain is approximately $95.00. For security reasons and as required by the insurers the item must be packed in a small FedEx box and then placed in a Medium sized FedEx box. 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 and proud of it. We work with a very competent Thai staff in Bangkok. We have been in business for 15 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 unwanted animals 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. 

Although we do not solicit funds for the expenses of the rescue occasionally we have people learn about what we do and donate something to the cause. Once while gushing about our success of finding a home for two of the cats we had rescued to an Englishman at an Irish pub in Bangkok we noticed the Englishman was intensely listening to us go on and on about it. He didn't have much to say since we were doing most of the talking but he asked for my business card and left the pub. A week later we received a letter in the mail with 5000 Baht (approx 175.00USD) with a note that only said "Leave it to an American". It made me feel rather proud. And you know... He just might be right.
