Fine arts & crafts products from Jewellery

As soon as the 2nd century, the Vietnamese were using gold and silver to create jewellery. There are three different techniques used to make gold and silver jewellery, including intricate carving, casting, which is the process of melting metal and pouring it into flower, lead, or bird shaped moulds, and common processing, which is a process of polishing metal.

                                                 

     These three techniques can be combined to make intricate pieces of jewellery. Because of the flexibility of the raw materials, the colour of gold, and the brightness of silver, beautiful necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, trays, and cups are created.

                                                 

     It is said that gold work originated in Dinh Cong Village near Ha Noi and that silver work originated in Dong Xam Village in Thai Binh Province.
