    Hi everyone! This thread is dedicated to an ongoing list of online reputable jade sellers. Many members who regularly post on the jade thread feel that such a list is important since we are asked many times about reputable sellers. This list can be added to, subtracted from and so on. If you are new to jade or already a collector and are interested in buying a grade A, untreated bangle or other piece of jade jewelry, the sellers on this list are a good resource.

  3. Oh yay thank you so much for this! The jade thread moves so fast and it's so large it's hard to navigate.
     
  4. Another reputable seller;

    Little Jade Sanctuary Etsy
    Pros; Very intimate selection of fine jades, extremely reasonable prices, kind seller.
    Cons; None.
     
  5. A friendly reminder that we don't allow any kind of advertising at all.
    This would include members that sell, cannot advertise, and you cannot advertise for those who give you gifts for doing so.


    Enjoy! :flowers:
     
  6. Thank you Swanky! So noted.

    I thought I would start a list of sellers who look legitimate, (as in they sell untreated, grade A jadeite/nephrite), but do not know of anyone yet who has purchased from them. If you have had experience with a new seller, please let us know!

    AlistarLDesigns Etsy
    Small selection of lovely jadeites.

    Linsjade
    Small selection of jadeites.

    Vintagebeauty168 Etsy
    Collection of vintage jadeites. Some are certified. Some harder to find, older jade colors.

    Koojade Ebay
    Seems legit but overpriced a little. Best offer option though.
     
  7. Has anyone ever bought from Rikooinn ?
     
  8. Nice! This is a great place to put feedback for sellers and purchases, whether positive, neutral, or negative. Much easier to have a single thread to search in for information about a seller or sellers than to wade through all the discussion in the other thread.

    To stay on topic: my last purchase was from Enijew: 2 pair of "cracked" jade earrings. Very unnoticeable cracks, Grade A jadeite, unmarked white metal posts advertised as sterling but I have no way to verify. Decent price considering I have no local market to compare to.

    Hi Millicat, I have never heard of that seller. What are your impressions of them? I tried to find them but couldn't.


    Another reputable seller:

    Jademaya.com
    Pros: Selection of South American Jadeite.
    Cons: None at present.
     
  10. Hmmm, i'm swaying to the negative purely on the feedback given on Ebay which isn't necessarily a good thing, and is why it would be good to hear the experiences of others.
    Historically i've bought from sellers who've been given negative for something and it's been the perfect experience ......
    You really do need to hear plenty before trying a new seller.
     
  11. That is really true Millicat. There is always the possibility that something in online jade sales will be less then perfect because we are dealing with people and human error, as well as the multiple qualities of jade. Even with the best sellers, there is always something that could happen which would earn them negative feedback.

    Ok, another promising seller:

    Jadeitehome etsy
    Pros; Descent prices, some icy jade.
    Cons; Small selection.
     
  12. Hey jade experts, I don't know if this is a good place to ask, so let me know if there is somewhere else to post this, or a new post should be initiated :smile:

    I am looking for a jade necklace in yellow gold with a modern look. Something like the Tiffany ELSA PERETTI Green Jade Cabochon Pendant (attached a picture). I have never seen it in person so I don't know how the jade looks like, but I like the design. Do you know any reputable seller offers similar necklaces, but maybe a little more options/characters on the jade?

    Thanks!!!

  13. I don't but I know a woman that probably will :P :yes:
    PM Clairejune incase she's not see this post :hugs:
     
  14. I'd start a new thread so this one stays on topic or post in the general jade thread :tup:
     
  15. I just received 2 jadeite bangles from a store on Etsy which has bangles that range from $11-$500. All her things are grade A, untreated and one can pay an extra $100 for certification if one needs proof. Usually people don't want it considering the low price range. Anyway, the bangles are ice clear and white jade with black inclusions like a winter landscape. These were the last from this series, but I think this seller is a great resource for unusual bangles at great prices. I've never seen even similar bangles to some of her bangles.

    WaterlilyProducts Etsy
    Pros; very reasonable prices, hand selected slabs which are then cut, of nephrite, jadeite and chalcedony, fantastic customer service, unusual items, great polish and hand finishing on bangles.
    Cons; very little negotiation, extra payment for fast shipping under orders of $100.
