I will not introduce the precious metal material bracelet we are relatively familiar with; I listed six kinds of more representative bracelets below.
1. Lapis lazuli bracelets
Lapis lazuli, known as the national stone in Afghanistan, was used by emperors to worship heaven. Lapis lazuli is stunning, but its toughness is poor, but the price of lapis lazuli is not high; wearing it also appears to be very elegant.
2. Agate bracelets
Agate is a cryptocrystalline quartzite, and its storage and production are enormous. The price is meager, and the color is vibrant. Agate also has new varieties; in recent years, prevalent southern red agate price is not high, medium price. According to the survey found that the cost of southern red agate is also falling year by year. There is also a new variety of Yanyuan agate; the excellent agate field is also unique. Salt source agate and other agates have a clear distinction.
3. Hetian Jade bracelets
Hetian jade has been used in China for thousands of years and has always been very popular with jade lovers. In ancient China, the best Hetian jade was only used by the imperial palace, so Hetian jade had a high status. Hetian jade, also known as nephrite, jade jadeite. The hardness of Hetian jade is smaller than jadeite, but the toughness is more elevated than jadeite. Hetian jade has famous mutton fat jade, hetian topaz, ink jade, sugar jade, smoke green, and ink. Authentic Hetian jade prices have been excellent and very sought after by people. In the market, many of Russia’s Hetian jade, Korea’s Hetian jade, and China’s Qinghai Province’s Hetian jade are excellent jade materials.

Emerald is very popular in the jewelry market; the figure is fantastic regardless of price, transaction amount, or turnover. It also has a high status in the jade market. Jadeite is only produced in Myanmar, also known as “Myanmar jade”; it mainly has pyroxene minerals composed of fibrous aggregates. The colors are vibrant; the colors are very bright. The price of much high-grade jewelry made of jade is very high, but the price does not affect people’s vigorous pursuit of jade jewelry. Jade is richer in color
