If the jade has a good translucency and maybe the right imperial green it might be immediately exponentially more expensive and we don't talk about treated items which are very common.

Some are beautifully carved bangles with various motifs to give a special touch. Gorgeous pieces look to pull themselves, it's rather casual, but it looks great and maybe as the Chinese tell it brings luck whenever it’s on your body but for this there is no guaranty that's a matter of believe some call it superstition.

Checking them to avoid fake jade and manipulation.

Checking them to avoid fake jade and manipulation could be done with a simple torchlight and a high level of experience there is no way to play games with the guy, he really tells exactly what's on.

The most popular is a green and lavender colored jewelry plus white items. All come as carved or simply polished, as pendants, amulets, rings, earrings etc. The pendants are often carved Buddha's. The real good quality is also called imperial. jade. Chinese are masters in carving they are expert and mostly work in shifts, 24 hours and still it takes sometimes more than a years to finish one piece of a sophisticated item.

For centuries methods to create this and other jewelry have been unchanged. They actually are not carved, the method is rather drilling and grinding.

Boulders are somewhere extracted (usually quality stones comes from northern Myanmar this days) from maybe 10 or 20m depth in the earth and are cut into pieces. From this point the methods to create the final object depends on the form of the object.

If its a real exquisite piece and everything fits it can fetch a higher price as a pure gold item of similar size. Another reason why it could be very high priced is the fact that Chinese people interpret certain supernatural power into the stone in this case the raw material, finally it's not supernatural, defined as a "living stone" but superstition just brewed together.
All this shows that there is a strange aura around jadeite even until present days and this is one of the reasons why people buy it.

Quality of most items is excellent, having a honey-like transparency or translucency, watery luster and smooth finish. This is definitely one of the most popular body decoration item in Asia. It looks attractive comes in many colors is exceptional hard and has a mythical aura built up over several thousand years. This variety makes it sure to find just the right for you fitting any fashion style. With bigger artworks it also depends who made it since there are famous artists in creating the pieces just like we have famous painters and similar. It can be very decorative also in the house not only as body decoration.

When buying a bangle or bracelet.

Buying a bangle or bracelet it is very important to check that it fits well and has no hard edges which can scratch or even rub the skin uncomfortably. When buying at a shop there is no problem since you can try it first, when buying them on the internet make a small model by just cutting the form with the right dimension out of paper or better cardboard and see if that measurements fit you.

Important is always the inside diameter and be careful when measuring because the wrist at the left has usually slightly different measurements than at the right side. After finding the dimensions have a look for the quality, color, translucency, texture and very important, check for cracks. If buying from the shop and the item is over lets they around $ 100,- take a strong torchlight and at least a 10 times magnifying glass with you to inspect the item optically, when buying over around thousand dollar take a consultant with who is experienced since there are too many tricks and cheating which you as a simple buy simply won’t notice, it’s too easy to lose quite a lot of money when you don’t have experience with the subject.

That’s one the reasons which makes it difficult to buy such things over a internet shop because it’s absolute impossible to figure that out from a photo on the screen. On top of it those pictures are usually enhanced with a picture manipulation program where it is possible to change all parameter for jade bracelets from clarity to transparence and color.

Jade Bangle Price.

This days shop sales people will tell the price will rise over time which is not true, why should be a rise? There is a lot of natural minerals out there, every month they discover some new deposits of Burmese gemstones.Lesser quality which is nephrite with proven deposits in China, New Zealand, USA, Canada etc. are rather large and they find a lot of new stone and boulders after the Chinese started a research and exploration program at some places at the fringes of the Taklimakan desert, they already found a lot new deposits in recent times. The thing should really be the quality to be focused on and forget all other things people tell to push up prices.

Jadeite jade is probably also best expressed by earrings and Buddha pendants. Of course there are others but that gets expensive then. If there is enough cash for some real great artwork get a carved Buddha, that's a real eye catcher in every house, not only optically but also with some mental background
