Jade Market Hong Kong

Jade Market Hong Kong
The Jade Market Hong Kong is a collection of hundreds of stands selling all kinds of jade, pearls, semi-precious stones, in all forms, shapes and sizes, being jewelry, carvings, little statues, chops, and anything that would make a good gift or just a little knick knack or memento to take home.

Jade has a very special meaning to the Chinese, it is considered a sacred stone that symbolizes purity and morality and stands for beauty and grace. Their appreciation can be compared to the predilection of gold and diamonds in the West.

Jade Market Stalls in Hong Kong

The Jade Market is an inside covered market with stalls lined up side by side.

The stands all carry many of the same products, and needless to say, bargaining is a must and unless you know your jade, stay away from very expensive pieces which may or may not be "the real thing".

Jade Market in Hong Kong: Lots of trinkets and merchandise

Jewelry pieces abound, you will see beautiful pendants, bracelets and bangles, necklaces, earrings, loose stones, rings... A lot to choose from at some very good prices.

Jade Market Hong Kong: bracelets, rings, necklaces, loose stones

Jade comes in many different colors and shades, light or dark green, white, even orange. There are other stones which are similar to jade, and there is also "synthetic" (definitely fake or plastic) jade.

As a general rule, the stone should feel cold to the touch, but keep in mind this market is more about buying a couple of good-looking pieces that you like than about buying "quality jade", this is definitely not the Christie's Jade auction...

The Jade Market is a daytime market, it is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Located in Kansu Street, take the MTR to Yau Ma Tei Station Exit C and follow the signs, it is a 8-10 minute walk down Nathan Road to Kansu Street, the market is under the freeway overpass. There are actually two locations side by side, the Jade "Bazaar" and the Jade "Market" they both carry the same kind of merchandise.

You can also turn right a block earlier on Market Street and stop at the Yau Ma Tei Tin Hau Temple (this is the temple that gives the "Temple Street Night Market" its name).
