The Jade Market In Sihui - China's Jade City

The Jade Market In Sihui - China's Jade City

A Look Behind The Scenes At The City Of Sihui - China's Jade Capital

 The city of Sihui - a few hours north of our home in Shenzhen.

Occasionally we use these jade products in our production of silver jewelry. We use sterling silver accents to enhance the jade pieces and make them more attractive to Western buyers, that is, our silver jewelry customers in Europe, Canada, USA and elsewhere around the world.

 Here are some photos of one of our trips to the jade market.

 Most of the jade production in Sihui takes place in people's homes, not in factories. There is an area in the city where you can walk along the street and hear the grinding and polishing of rough jade from the apartments above all day long - from early in the morning until late at night.

Occasionally we will design sterling silver earrings, pendants, bracelets or rings that incorporate jade pieces. They are very popular with our customers though out the world who know that jade is associated with good luck.

Check out our website from time to time. You might find a unique sterling silver and jade jewelry piece that will make your friends envious.
