One way Koreans keep their gold is in the form of 24K jewelry. The unit used in Korea for 24K gold is the "Don". A Don converts to 3.75 grams, and to 1/10th of "Tael". "Don" Korean jewelry is the highest possible close to pure gold and still be able to make jewelry. I have bought Don several gold chains and had them tested scientifically at the refinery. This chain tested at over 99% pure gold, but had a little bit of silver, which was used for soldering closed the chain links.

Jewelry stores in Chinatown selling traditional ethnic Asian style jewelries is not an uncommon thing, but one store named “Popular jewelry” stands out in particular for attracting notable customers. On a wall inside the store, there are many photos of celebrities including Travis Scott, A$AP mob, Tracy Morgan, Macklemore, and pictured alongside them is Chiokva Eva Sam, the owner of popular jewelry.
China becomes world's largest gold consumer in 2013, according to lenta.ru. Chinese demand for gold increased by 32 percent within a year. Gold jewelry fabrication raised nearly a third to 724 tones, surpassing India for the first time. Indian consumption rose to 5 per cent to 987.2 tons last year.

Originally, the four "tycoon" gold shops were Seng Heng Li, Hua Seng Heng, Tung Jin Aeng and Tang To Kang. Now there are more than 130 gold shops along Yaowarat Road alone, which is why it is known as the "Golden Road". Generally, the gold is of high standard (of approximately 23 karat gold) and most shops are a member of the Gold Merchants Association. As this district is out of the tourist eye, it is a lot safer to buy gems here than in other districts, but still be on the lookout for the gem scam. See the Stay safe section of the Bangkok page for more information about the scam and what to do once you've fallen for it. Back on Yaowarat Road, walk further for 320 m, you will notice the archway of Traimitwitthayaram Temple (or Wat Traimit for short) on your left-hand side. The feature of this temple is the largest 5.5 ton gold Buddha image in the world whose name is Phra Sukhothai Traimit. This is an image of Buddha in the posture of subduing Mara made of pure gold. In the old days, this image was covered with plaster to hide it from the enemy invading Thailand at the end of the Ayutthaya period. Later, when the image was being moved to be enshrined in a new vihara, the covering plaster was accidentally broken, revealing the hidden radiance of gold. A few months ago, I had a chance to explore the route of the one-day Walking Tour of Chinatown, Bangkok, and found it quite interesting. This area is one of the earliest Chinese communities in Thailand. It bears a lot of interesting aspects-history, architecture and commerce-which are worth promoting as a valuable heritage. Realizing this, the River City Shopping Complex, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration and Samphanthawong District Office thus cooperated to launch this project of Walking Tour. From the temple, walk to Wanit I Road and you will enter Sampheng shopping centre, an old Chinese community originally residing in the Grand Palace area but moved to outside the city wall by order of King Rama I who was establishing his capital at Rattanakosin Island in 1782. Various kinds of goods, mostly for wholesale, ranging from sewing instruments to souvenirs are available here. The narrow street is usually crowded like a marketplace. bangkok thailand chinatown "china town" yaowarat gold "gold shop" "gold bullion" "gold jewelery" "bangkok thailand" "south east asia" asia asian famous "world famous" travel holiday vacation tourism tourist discount "sell gold" "buy gold" "gold trading" bullion silver market "street food" food 2014 thai "thai food" traveling flight booking hotel "bangkok hotel" apartment "bangkok apartment" farang foreign phuket pattaya "hua hin" king shopping entertainment trendy trends "thailand discovery" ladyboy girls pattaya chiang mai sexy thai girls walking street beach jomtien full moon party songkran Yaowarat and Phahurat (Thai: เยาวราชและพาหุรัด) is Bangkok's multicultural district, located west of Silom and southeast of Rattanakosin. Yaowarat Road is the home of Bangkok's sizable Chinese community, while those of Indian ethnicity have congregated around Phahurat Road. By day, Yaowarat doesn't look that much different from any other part of Bangkok, though the neighbourhood feels like a big street market and there are some hidden gems waiting to be explored. But at night, the neon signs blazing with Chinese characters are turned on and crowds from the restaurants spill out onto the streets, turning the area into a miniature Hong Kong (minus the skyscrapers). Phahurat is an excellent place for buying fabrics, accessories and religious paraphernalia. A visit to the area is not complete without having some of its amazing delicacies that sell for an absolute bargain — such as bird's nest or some Indian curries. Many gold shops in Yaowarat, Bangkok's Chinatown, have no gold for sale after prices plunged below 20,000 baht recently, sparking a buying frenzy, Gold Traders Association chairman Jitti Tangsithpakdi said on Tuesday. "There's no gold to be sold because manufacturers can't produce the items quick enough [to meet the demand]," said Mr Jitti, owner of Chin Hua Heng gold shop. Some gold shops even confronted each other, competing to buy gold from sellers, he said. He said investors with gold in hand should not sell at this time because prices would likely increase from now on, after the gold bar price earlier tumbled to 18,600 baht per baht-weight. "I think gold prices will be about 23,000 to 24,000 baht by the end of this year," Mr Jitti said.
