On the west side of Wangfujing Street lies a jewelry shop named Heng Fu Sheng, or "everlasting wealth and prosperity" in English. The shop mainly sells necklaces, pendants, and bracelets.
On the necklace pendant section, I found a large variety of jadeite pendants in showcases. The designs included Buddha (fit for women), Guanyin (the Goddess of Mercy, fit for men), and the twelve animals of the Chinese Zodiac, such as rat, ox, tiger and rabbit.
The most appealing pendant to me was a Pixiu, the fortunate animal in Chinese legend. With a dragon's head, a deer¡¯s ears, a goat¡¯s horns, a lion¡¯s body, a phoenix¡¯s tail, a tiger's paws, and a pair of wings, a Pixiu can ward off evil and increase wealth for its owner. This Pixiu in jasper and yellow looked very exquisite and vivid. The price tag for it was RMB 2,800, but customers could have it for 60% off.
The shop also sells grade-A jadeite bracelet at 500 yuan each.
