The Miao are one of the most fascinating ethnic minorities in China. Recently, I found a Miao handicrafts shop on Yandai Xiejie. I was impressed by their silver ornaments and wax printing works.


The shop owner Mr. Zhang was dressed in the Miao traditional dress. He told me that Miao silver ornaments have a history of 400 years. The Miao have a variety of items that can brighten up your look from head to toe: silver headdresses, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, clothing accessories, waistbands, and anklets.


Miao girls are very partial to silver jewelry, as they see silver as a symbol of purity. And according to Miao customs, the larger, heavier, and more plentiful silver ornaments are considered the most beautiful.


Mr. Zhang showed me a pair of silver earrings. They feature long, beautiful twin birds. The silver threads are as thin as hair. Every detail is so fine.


The headdresses looked pretty heavy. I was afraid to wear any one of them, and it¡¯s not a good idea if you have a slender neck.


The blue cloth items with white patterns are actually wax printings. The patterns show beautiful flowers and Miao girls.


The cloth is made in a unique way: they draw an image on a piece of fabric with wax, and dip the fabric into a vat that contains dark blue dye. The parts of the fabric with wax cannot be dyed, so it will show off a gorgeous white pattern when the wax is removed.


At last, here¡¯s a tip to identify a real wax printing: Take a close look at a real wax painting work, you will find a number of fine, irregular blue crackles on the white area. They are caused when folding the wax-covered area, and the blue dye seizes the opportunity to permeate through the cracks.

Though an established brand in the US, Simon G.¡¯s recent opening at The Place represents the jeweler¡¯s first foray into the Asian market. And everything in this carefully designed and planned store is focused on pitching their products towards its new customers. Recognizing the needs for most of their clients, there is a strong emphasis on the bridal theme.

The jewels themselves are certainly enough to impress you and your significant other. The designs are glitzy and innovative, with a focus on two-tone coloring and creative placing of stones. The materials used are also of premium quality, with the majority of pieces fashioned from 18 carat gold or platinum, featuring the most precious of stones. Those who find some of the designs a bit too ostentatious for their tastes can choose from simpler, more contemporary designs.

Prices starts from RMB 700 for a simple 0.5 carat ring and rises up to RMB 128,000 and beyond for an extravagant diamond and gold-latticework band. The store is currently running a promotion where every purchase of over RMB 5,000 comes with a complimentary solid silver key ring, valued at RMB 666.

The shop assistants speak basic English, so simple conversation is not a problem.
