Friends International Thailand Pendant 18k Gold and Sapphire

Friends International  Thailand Pendant

 

Everyone who visits Thailand – and Southeast Asia – is charmed.  The people, the food, the beaches, the culture…. visiting friends and family, and fellow expats say being here is “amazing,” “a life-changing experience” and “unforgettable” among other glowing adjectives!

(Side note, friends back home: plan a trip to come see us soon!)

This feeling of connection inspired our Southeast Asia charm pendants.  Our Thailand pendant is matte 18k gold, with a blue sapphire designating Bangkok. Each is hand-hammered by Thai goldsmiths so no two are exactly alike.

Since each pendant is made to order, your Thailand charm can be as personal as your experience here.  Beyond choosing 18k yellow, white or rose (pink) gold, several clients have discovered innovative ways to wear them:

  • One client plans to create a charm bracelet of all of the countries in Southeast Asia she has visited.
  • Another wants to commemorate a special vacation here where she took a relationship to the next level.
  • One woman is considering making two charms into custom cuff links for her dapper husband.

Through the end of the year, $100 USD from every pendant sold will be donated to Friends International Thailand.  Friends Thailand provides children and youth in need with food and hygiene supplies; healthcare; counseling; education; family and school re-integration; and safe migration support.

Your donation from just one pendant can provide:

  • First Aid assistance to 30 street children
  • Soap, shampoo, a toothbrush, and toothpaste for 30 street children
  • Emergency medical treatment to one child
  • Food, clothing, and shelter to a family living on the street or in a slum
  • School uniform, textbooks, workbooks, and pencils to three students

We’re looking for twenty men and women who would like to make a real difference for children and families in Thailand while treating themselves to a beautiful handmade piece of jewelry.  The pendants retail for $460 USD and ordering one is easy.  Just send us an email or Facebook message and in a couple of weeks your pendant will arrive in a hand-sewn Thai silk pouch.
