About Polamai

Sales 2,297
On Etsy since 2015

Modern fine handcrafted jewelry created only with earth mined gemstones.

Polamai Fine Jewelry was born from a desire to create modern yet timeless jewelry, using only the finest natural gemstones and precious metals which would stand the test of time.

The Polamai team is small, and truly international; British, German, Thai, Indian and Filipino. We don't always understand each other, but we get along pretty well. Skills gleaned from our combined experience in fashion design, gemology, lapidary and information technology, allow us to bring you a highly personalized jewelry collection with an attention to detail and emphasis on quality that is difficult to find these days.

For even longer than than we have been making jewelry (around 9 years) we dealt in gemstones, sourcing fine gems for world famous jewelry brands and private customers. Our gemstones sources are second to none; our quality and prices exceptional. Polamai jewelry collections are always driven first by the gemstones. We don't buy in large batches, we hand pick only the finest from the trusted sources that we have built up over the years.

Each piece is carefully designed and handmade from start to finish at our semi-open air workshop in Bangkok, Thailand. Nothing is mass produced and each one of our highly experienced metal smiths has been taught by generations before them.

A few years ago we expanded from taking private orders and opened our first Etsy store, to great success. If you would like a second opinion on our quality and customer service, please take a look at our exceptionally long list of glowing 5 star reviews.

We aim to provide an open, transparent and personal service for our fine jewelry customers. If you have any questions about Polamai or our jewelry pieces, please contact us. We will be happy to hear from you.

Shine on!

ps. 'Polamai' is the phonetic spelling of the Thai word for 'fruits', and gemstones are the fruits of time. We used to have a jewelry collection called Polamai in which the gemstones we used looked like juicy ripe fruits drops on branches of gold. The name has clearly stuck with us.

Shop policies

Last updated on December 5, 2019
Welcome to Polamai. Fine gemstone jewelry for women with a taste for understated luxury and contemporary design.

OUR GUARANTEE...

NATURAL GEMSTONES
We are Gems people. Lab created stones are of no interest to us. We love the history, character and soul of real gemstones and all of our stones are earth mined. No moissanite which is always a laboratory created stone. No 'cultured', 'chatham', gemstone colored quartz, or any other nonsense. The only treatment we accept is heat or minor oiling in the case of Emeralds.

​CONFLICT FREE, NATURAL DIAMONDS
The white diamonds we use are all natural, earth minded, not clarity enhanced or treated in any other way. Our colored diamonds, blue, brown, yellow and black, undergo heat treatment to enhance their color, but are otherwise natural. Our diamonds are conflict free. Our suppliers conform to all UN regulations for the purchase and import of diamonds, including the Kimberly process. We can provide invoices to prove this if so required.

​SOLID GOLD OR PLATINUM 950
The only metals Polamai Fine Jewelry use are solid 14 or 18 carat gold, or platinum 950. Solid metals will last many lifetimes, unlike plated or 'vermeil' gold pieces which will wear off over time. Our white gold is rhodium plated for a longer lasting finish at no extra charge. None of our metals contain nickel, which can irritate the skin. All jewelry pieces are hallmarked in accordance with international regulations.

​SUPERIOR CRAFTSMANSHIP
Each piece of Polamai jewelry is crafted by hand in our workshop. Nothing is mass produced . Our small team of incredibly talented metal smiths have been taught by generations and work to the highest international standards. We believe the finish and durability of our jewelry is second to none.

​Our team's working environment is important to us.  Our metal smiths work in a bright and breezy, partly open air workshop which is also part of our lead metal smith's family home.

​INDEPENDENT CERTIFICATION 
We guarantee that the quality and dimensions of our jewelry pieces is as described here on our website. We do not misrepresent gemstone size, weight or quality grade.

In addition, we offer independent certification by either IGI (http://www.igiworldwide.com) or GIL (www.http://gillabs.com) laboratories for the same price as the laboratory charges us, 38 USD. Offering this as an additional service help us to keep our prices competitive. If you would like a certificate please message us to request one at the time you place your order. 

​GIA (https://www.gia.edu) certification for individual gemstones is also available, starting at 90 USD per stone. GIA do not certify finished jewelry pieces set with smaller gemstone sizes.

​Please beware sellers that claim to have high quality diamonds but do not offer certification, or provide a certificate guaranteed by themselves or someone they employ. This is no guarantee of quality.

​Any of our pieces featuring a diamond of a weight of 0.20 carats or over, will automatically come with a certificate from an independent laboratory, free of charge.
