Wow! I Love this thread! I'm so happy to have bump into this thread. Love all the pics and information about Jade. I have a few Jade jewelry that my DH bought me about 12yrs ago. We never really paid much attention about it's quality, all we cared about at the time is that it was real even then, we really were just taking their words for it. It did indicate in the receipts that they were real Jade though
Hmmm...all this pics of Jade bangle bracelets making me want a new wider w/ a flat inner rim bracelet
Thought to share my Jade Jewelry!

Thank you
Is that what it's called? Do you know if this is a common color?
I've had these jewelry for years...I love the solid jade bangle bracelet but unfortunately I can't wear them. I tried to wear them once, since it fits really snug it felt like it was constricting my wrist. I took them off and I never attempted to put them back on again. My favorite is the Jade and gold bangle bracelet that DH surprised me with. He bought it on one of his trip to Asia

I havn't seen a red jade bangle in real life. The only red jade i've seen are small pieces set into earrings or rings. Yours is very pretty. May i know where you got it from?

DH bought this for me long time ago in Bangkok Thailand. The name of the Jewelry store is called Venus Jewelry.

I just received my jade bangle too, going to take some photos soon. In real life, the bangle appears darker than the seller's photos though.
Can't wait to see your pics!

A really late update, i bought a pale green jade bangle online in august and two weeks later, i decided that it is a little too big for me at 56mm and bangs around so much at my desk job, hence, placed another order for a white, greyish jade bangle at 51 mm.

The 51mm fitted really well and i had to really squeeze my hand in to fit. However, i feel that i can really go even smaller like 49 mm for a better fit. Well, i will wait till i go to the jade markets in Hong Kong and buy in person. Buying online is truly a leap of faith
I have been wearing it 24/7 non stop for 2 weeks.

Now, i don't know what to do with 2 bangles as i can't wear them as a stack as they are too noisy. Perhaps i should give the larger green one to my mommy.

excuse my dry winter hand

Is the white one the thinner one on the inside of your wrist (sorry my monitor doesnt show uo colors very well)? I like it, it's very pretty. You have very slim wrists and hands to be able to fit into a 51mm!

I know some people wear a gold bangle between 2 jade bangles as a buffer. You can give it a try if u decide to keep the green one. Alternatively u can also take turns wearing them. Both are pretty :-)

There is an old lady on my block who does it the other way round - she wears a thick bright green jade bangle sandwiched between 2 thin gold bangles. It looks really regal :-)
