Chantrakarn Jewellers—two young Chiang Mai-born guys, Chan and Karn, who have been in business for 4 years and have built up a considerable reputation for their unique and finely crafted Thai –style jewellery. Chan is the designer, getting his inspiration from the stones themselves—with a little help from “celeb” magazines and the TV!
Formerly in hairdressing and teaching, their large stall is at Airport Plaza, Zone A, in front of Northern Village and near Make-Up Studio. If you don’t know your birthstone, they can help, both on Zodiac signs and the weekday of your birth. Chantrakarn is often asked to provide jewellery for fashion shows and special city events, such as at the Fashion Show on August 27 at the Shangri La in aid of the Rooftop Party Charity.
