What is Siam Sterling?

Siam Sterling jewelry was a popular motif in the 1950s and 1960s. It is usually stamped “Siam” or “Niello” on the back. You will find common examples with Siamese dancers on bracelets, earrings, and pins. The peacock pictured is another popular design. All Siam sterling is sterling silver and will usually have some type of black, white or colored enamel as part of the design.
