Anantara was founded as and continues to be, a lovingly curated and designed collection of handcrafted jewelry, created around the owner's love for everything hand made and the artistic aesthetic of rural South East Asia. The collection represents a blend of traditional motifs and craftsmanship with contemporary and functional design. Except where noted, all items and their components are hand made by traditional Hill Tribe silversmiths. Thai Hill Tribe Silver has a higher silver content than sterling (92.5%), and is typically 95 - 99% pure silver. The higher silver content makes the silver slightly softer and therefore, easier to pound and shape.
WE ARE FAIR TRADE
One of the driving forces behind our business is to incorporate this set of internationally recognized business principles which includes empowering women, ethnic minorities and other marginalized people, to flourish and thrive in their work and to develop economic independence.
Hill Tribe silver can be easily cleaned with a polishing cloth. Beaded items should not be immersed in water. Sterling and vermeil earrings are hand made using fine quality sterling with an overlay of 22k gold or rose gold. These are delicate and should be worn with care. Do not immerse in water. Exposure to perfume, hairspray and other chemicals can speed tarnishing or damage the finish. To clean, use a non-chemical cleaning solution.
