Jadeite Jewelry in Beijing

[ From: Maggie | Published: 2007-08-31 Views: 2478 | Booked times: 54 ]

Jadeite, a luxurious jewelry material, is very popular all around China. In Chinese people¡¯s mind, it is not only a great decorative material, but also good for health.

 

Hengchang Jewelry specializes in jadeite items: both decorative, and ornamental. According to the shop assistant, the material used by the shop comes from Burma, the largest exporter of jadeite in the world.

 

For the most part, the merchandise on display consists in bracelets. I also noticed some interesting rings, pendants, brooches, and necklaces. The decorative items are sculpted representations of religious figures (Kwan-yin, Buddha) and animals (Kylins - a mythical sort of lion which never lets out what it eats, and is therefore a symbol of keeping money and prosperity in China), and safety pins.

 

Jadeite comes in various colors: white, green, a mix of white and green. The best jadeite is ice-white and highly transparent.

 

Prices range from RMB 1000 to ¡®astronomical figures¡¯. The shop does not believe in discounting, but you can always bargain.

 

What I appreciated:

Exquisite Jadeite

 

What customers appreciate:

Exquisite designs, high-quality jadeite
