One of our favorite groups of amulets is the Jatukam style Buddha series amuelts from Wat Mahathat in Nakhon si Thammarat, Southern Thailand. We have sold only a small number of these, probably because we priced them so high. They are worth a very good price, and yet, we have had most of these for about three years now. Seeing them in our amulet trays makes us think there are fewer happy people out there that could have one. We have 23 of them. The price for all 23 should be around $4,600 USD. Honestly, it should be higher. We have some collectors, but I think some don’t understand the value of these. They aren’t being made any longer. They are completely sold out at the temple, you cannot find any of them. They are very well made and solid silver for most of them. There are also some bronze, pewter, copper, and nickel amulets.
So, today we are going to have a major one-time sale on these Buddha Jatukams. Originally the price for each was averaging $220 and for all of them would have been $4,600.
For a short while we will offer them for $2,700 for the entire set of 23 – if someone buys them quickly.
Individually you can buy one for $110 OFF at just $109.95.
Sorry, there are no further discounts for buying multiple amulets.
BUYERS OF EACH AMULET RECEIVE:
Free Shipping with tracking – worldwide.
Free stainless steel amulet case
Free necklace to fit amulet
Free blessed Buddhist bracelets
Free Luang Phor Tuad window sticker!

We just returned from a trip to Nakhon si Thammarat, where we were able to again find some very unique amulets – these, solid silver Jatukam Ramathep style amulets, from our favorite temple – Wat Mahathat in the city center.
We found about five unique solid silver amulets that we have not seen before. These are originals, straight from the original source of the Jatukam amulets of Thailand. These are not copies, they are blessed (the temple sells no unblessed amulets), and they are great collector’s items to hand down as you pass, so your family can enjoy them and hand them down to their own kids.
If you don’t have any blessed Buddhist items to hand down to your children and grandchildren, these are the perfect gifts. We priced them right – see here:
We took a road trip to one of our favorite temples, and the most famous Buddhist temple in southern Thailand today. The purpose of the trip was to visit with a friend of mine that just had another baby – this one a girl! So I visited with her and her son, while my hubby went to the main temple to see if he could find some amulets, necklaces and bracelets we needed badly.
And he did!
This video does not give a great representation of the amazing ceramic sparklies that are part of this amulet – the blue. It is all washed out. We’ll shoot better videos tomorrow for this and show it the way it really is! It’s so much better than what you see here – promise. Actually, here are photos below of these amulets which give a better approximation of what they really look like:
We found a lot of different items we needed. We bought about 80 necklaces, 12 amulets, and a couple of hundred bracelets to restock what was depleted. We give a LOT of bracelets away – hundreds each month, so they go quickly.
Apparently there were two lovely amulets that almost became ours. One did. The one that wasn’t purchased was a Kwan Yin stone carving from Nepal. I’ve seen the photos – hubby said it was stunning. The temple wanted something like 5,000 THB for it. Which is fair, for sure, and actually a good deal I think. But, the problem is – will anyone recognize a Kwan Yin from Nepal? That’s the thing. The Kwan Yin’s from Nepal have many arms – like the typical Indian Kwan Yin, however, they also have many heads and faces… MANY. The face looks very man-like also. Is this something that our customers will buy? We’re just not sure. We didn’t buy it.
The other amazing item, was a blue crystal Buddha – carved straight from an oval rock. It’s priceless. He said he had to buy that one. I’m so glad he did, it’s so beautiful. This is the most beautiful crystal statue we’ve ever had – or seen. Most of the statues are just typical and plain. This one is so lovely you have to see it. We’ll take photos tomorrow in the morning light.
This Buddha is going to be hard to ship. Someone might think it’s an antique or somehow important to Thai history. But, it is not old, it has been made within the last 10 years – we’re guessing. The price will be high. I’m not sure we have anything for $395 at the moment, but I think that’s what makes the most sense. Remember – we give 10% back to the temple after a sale, so if you buy it you are contributing to Wat Mahathat temple again… I say again because we already bought it for thousands of baht, then we’ll give over 1,000 THB back to the temple after it sells.
The other amulets we purchased today were jade Buddhas – the happy, smiling, chubby Buddhas that sell so well. These are a bluish green Buddha color and they are absolutely some of the coolest Buddhas we have. Unfortunately we could only find one of the necklaces we like for these jade Buddha pendants, so the first one to order will get it I guess.
We bought a bunchof the traditional brown bracelets, some pink and white and yellow and white bracelets… and I think even some purple and white because we are running low.
We found two very special bead necklaces that we’ll sell for about $29 each. We just want to test the market and see if anyone out there appreciates them like we do.
Oh, oops, we also grabbed two more of the solid silver Buddha amulets from 7-8 years back that were made specifically for Wat Mahathat in Nakhon Si Thammarat – these are the colored Buddha series – and we now have about 19 of them in stock. We are not sure we will even sell them – we like them so much! These are never to be found again, they were a one time pressing – and the molds have been destroyed. These are collectors items – even more so than the traditional Jatukam Ramathep amulets the temple has. The Buddha Jatukams are still selling like crazy at the temple. Good for us that few Thais have the money to pay what they are worth – and we can still get them!
We currently have in-stock over 1,600 Thai amulets to sell to customers. If you love Thai amulets, you must have a look at our main store: www.ThaiAmuletSales.com and see if you can find something that matches the type of amulet or bracelet you might wear or something you might feel proud to give as a gift.
