During our recent trip to Thailand we came across this shop called “Sistema”. They wish to preserve the culture of Thailand by creating silver jewellery and show-pieces, reflecting Thai tradition.
I was fascinated by this necklace with Thai numerals in silver…..
The card at the back read ….
A little research made their meaning clearer – Thai letter 9 is pronounced as “gao” which sounds similar to “Kow-nah” meaning progress or moving forward.
Considering that most numbers are considered lucky in one culture or the other … wearing the whole lot makes one super lucky?! I would like to believe so 😉
