I'd always fancied doing a silver smith course, then saw this and thought it would be a great way to try it out. The course cost 1,400B (about £28) for the day (10.30 until 3.30ish) and then you pay for what silver you use (mine cost about 300B/£6). The location was good in Chiang Mai, easy to find, and not far outside the Old City. The silver studio was clean (for a workshop!) with individual benches, tools and equipment for each person. We were given lots of help, but did almost all the work ourselves which was such great experience. I made a silver pendant and also had time to make two small silver rings too. They were kind, accommodating and patient. I'm delighted with the pieces I made and am so glad I went. Will definitely be going back and taking friends. Excellent course!

I guess one can also take some sort of courses at this place; but I've only come for the shopping, repeatedly.

They have great jewelry, many of them unisex, in a distinctive style; perhaps this place is expensive by Thai standards but it's certainly inexpensive by Western standards.

If you want to show off with `recognizable' jewelry, by all means head to Tiffany's, Hermès, and the likes. If you want something sophisticated and (relatively) unique instead, at very affordable prices, come here.

On the advice of Lonely Planet, we made a point to come by Nova to check out their unique jewelry. Offering semi-precious stones and a few of the precious variety, their pieces were indeed something to behold.

Rings & necklaces that flipped to show topaz on 1 side and sapphire on the other, rose gold emeshed inside white gold, off-center amythest rings that were perfect for more of a statement piece, we found a number of trinkets to bring back with us to the US.

They also offered to custom-make anything we wanted if we didn't see it in their shop & ship to the US - how awesome was that??

Close to the Night Market and the Sunday Walking Street, we were happy to find Nova so close & so convenient. I understand they offer classes as well & had we more time in Chiang Mai, we would have definitely indulged - if you have the time, do yourself a favor and at least visit the jewelry shop

This was one of the unexpected highlights of my trip to Chiang Mai. It cost 1400b pp for the course, plus whatever silver you use (e.g. my ring cost 224b, my friends 700b). I wasn't sure how involved I'd be in the actual process, but it is completely hands on from start to finish which makes for a very satisfying ring at the end :)
