Miao people have always been renowned silversmiths. Historically, Miao jewellery used to be made out of melted silver coins. Women therefore wore a part of the family patrimony and proclaimed their social status. Nowadays, most of the jewellery are made of an alloy of several metals, including silver-plated copper and zinc.
