'Hoi Tong' Powder

This powder was originally used by many asian ladies as a cosmetic powder. It was believed to add a glow to the face. It’s traditionally applied prior to ‘threading', a hair removal technique using a cotton thread, to reduce facial oil and achieve smooth face complexion.

For many years now, this loose powder has also been used as a polishing agent by silversmiths, including our very own Karen HillTribe Silversmiths. We can now offer the very same powder to you to keep your silver sparkling, supplied directly from our HillTribe Silversmiths!

The powder contains a naturally-occurring soft abrasive, which helps gently remove tarnish, without harsh chemical abrasives.

Toe Rings

All sterling silver toe rings are adjustable, with some being more flexible than others due to the thickness of individual toe ring designs.

Kids Jewellery

Each piece of jewellery from our children's collection is designed to fit snuggly while allowing room for some movement when worn as an anklet or bracelet. This ensures it’s not loose enough to fall off while being worn, yet not too tight that it is uncomfortable for the child to wear.

Our children's jewellery collection comprises of standard sizes; Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large. While we aim to provide a general guide to which sizes should fit which age range, each child is different. Therefore, the only way to ensure a perfect fit is to measure the wrist or ankle of the wearer.

Measuring children for anklets/bracelets

If you don’t have a soft tape measure, you can easily use a piece of string to take the correct measurement. Just place a piece of string around the wearer’s ankle or wrist so that it sits comfortably and then measure the length of the string against a ruler or industrial tape measure.
