Pirateship accessories are famous throughout China. The brand caters to young people, who find that Pirateship jewelries feel special as well as affordable.
The brand owned many outlets in Beijing, and I visited its location near the Friendship Hotel by the North 3rd Ring. Inside I found a large selection of quality silver accessories such as rings, earrings, necklaces, and brooches.
Some of the merchandise, like necklaces and brooches, are displayed on black flannelette. Other items are shown on shelves. Pirateship uses mainly 925 silver, colored shells, semi-precious stones as material.
The shop assistant told me that colored shell does not fade easily, and great for long-term use. With that in mind, she recommended to me a pair of colored shell earrings, priced at RMB 160. The pendants on the earring featured two hues, light blue and half pink, separated by a golden line. The surface was polished and bright. I found the price on the cheap side for its quality.
Generally, I found the prices for earrings, rings, and brooches to be from RMB 50 to RMB 300. Necklaces are more expensive, from RMB 300 to 1000.
