When Jonathan went to China in 2002, he talked about the jade. How there was so much beautiful jade, and all of it was inexpensive.
When I heard that there was a jade market in Hong Kong, I knew I had to go there.
It’s tucked in between two side streets in Kowloon, and there are two different buildings that are basically warehouses where people set up small stands selling everything you can imagine.
There is jade everything, pearls hanging everywhere, and bargaining aplenty.
I went with nothing particular in mind, just browsing. But who can really spend an afternoon looking at jewelry and come away empty handed? Not me. Not me.
Be sure that you visit both buildings of the jade market. There are different things in each one, and each little stall is better than the one before.
Oooohhh, I love it!
Yes, a visit to the jade market comes recommended. When do you plan to be in Hong Kong?
I hope you bought something while you were there — we bought a little rabbit because we were born in the year of the rabbit. I know how much you love jade!!
Now that you actually have it, I can tell you that this is where we got the pearl necklace that we carried with us and gave to you in Italy. Happy Birthday! 🙂
