Picking out Jade Gifts at Reasonable Prices

[ From: Maggie | Published: 2007-09-11 Views: 1954 | Booked times: 56 ]

As I walked through the south gate of the Zhongguancun Walking Street Plaza, I saw Baoyixuan Jade Shop is near the entrance. The shop offers various jade jewelry, including bracelets, pendants, necklaces, and rings.


Jade is a type of precious stone commonly used to craft accessories in China. Prices typically vary a great deal, based on the quality of jade used. For example, I found several simple hand-spun necklaces with jade decorations for around RMB 150. They make great souvenirs or gift items.


High quality pure jade jewelry tend to be a lot more expensive. An quality bracelet, the most common jade jewelry in China, priced around RMB 5,000. However, some high-quality bracelets cost from RMB 23,000 to even RMB 600,000. The jade pendants in the shape of a Buddha, are regarded as good-luck charms, which are priced at least at RMB 100. The higher quality ones, though, cost more than RMB 5000 each. They usually show exquisite craftsmanship, and more intricate designs.


A professional shop assistant introduced a necklace with a green, transparent Buddha-shaped pendant to me. It's hand-made, about 3 cm long, which costs RMB 238.


The store does have some foreign visitors on occasion, so their shop assistants can just speak a little English. They offer 20% discount on expensive items that cost more than RMB 1000.

The pendant with a sheep character
