Good Times for Gold Jewelry Makers in China

China's gold demand is likely to surge tremendously in coming years, with market liberalization and increasing popularity of jewelry.

Mainland gold consumption, including retail and institutional investment and sales of gold jewelry, increased by 13 per cent and 21 per cent in terms of volume and price respectively during the fourth quarter of last year compared to the same period in 2003.

Demand for gold jewelry drove the surge, partly due to the efforts of the WGC, a London-based non-profit organization engaged in promoting gold consumption worldwide

WGC teams up with local jewelry retailers and well-known brands to promote its recently developed K-gold, or 18k gold, products.

Promotion of the K-gold series of jewelry is based on the research on young Chinese people, who attach more attention to design, fashion and workmanship rather than purity.

WGC's figures indicate consumption of 18k jewelry accounted for 12 per cent of all gold jewelry last year, up from 5 per cent in 2003 and 2 per cent in 2004.

WGC's statistics indicate gold demand on the mainland was 70.9 tons in the first quarter of this year, up from 62 tons a year ago.

Meanwhile gold jewelry demand rose by 13.2 per cent year-on-year to 66.8 tons in the period, while retail investment climbed by 35.8 per cent to 4.1 tons.

Cultured & natural pearls

Customer Question: What are cultured pearls? Are they fake?

Cultured pearls are not imitation or fake pearls. In fact, they are natural pearls with help from man. The forming principle, process and output between natural and cultured pearls are almost the same: an oyster secretes a smooth and hard crystalline substance when its inner body is irritated by sand or other solid substances. The intruded substance then is surrounded by the secreted crystalline substance called nacre, and after a long period of time, the nuclear will become a beautiful pearl. While the difference is: for natural pearls, the nuclear gets in the oyster by itself, while for cultured pearls, the nuclear is inserted by men. In this case, natural pearls and cultured pearls are almost the same and in some circumstances, cultured pearls are better in shape and luster because they form in selected oysters.

For Topearl.com, all pearls are cultured pearls - cultured freshwater pearls,akoya pearls or South sea pearls. Welcome to visit our pearl jewelry store for pearl jewelry, pearl necklace.

Pearl Jewelry for Graduation Gifts

What is the best gift to set off a girl's beauty? A suitable set of jewelry will, especially in some special occasions.

Supposed that your little girl will attend her graduation ceremony tomorrow after finishing her study. What is the perfect gift for her to represent your best wishes and to symbolize her new life from tomorrow?

The best recommendation is the freshwater pearl jewelry. But why? Here are four reasons:

First of all, pearls are elegant. Rounded, smooth and bright, a pearl can make any girl like a princess and attractive. And a peal can be matched to any kinds of clothes, from a common dress to a formal robe, just to bring the girl more elegance.

(Go to pearl necklace for your graduation jewelry gifts)

Second, pearl is the treasure for every lady. Every lady should possess a pearl. It is the dearest present to make them delighted, no matter elder lady or young girls.
When your daughter participates in a party or a special occasion, be sure that she has her own special set of pearls.

Third, the pearl jewelry is affordable. Even though a pearl is elegant and makes a lady like the wealthy people, it is affordable. The technique for raising pearl oysters is developing, in this case, the price for pearls are much lower than it used to be. However, there are surely some rare and expensive ones. You may choose the ones which are most suitable to your wealth.

And finally, a pearl has its spirit. Pearls are different from other jewelries because of its unique forming process. A pearl is developed from a common stone. When an oyster encounters the stone, it will secrete substances to coat the stone. As time passes, the once little stone will become a beautiful pearl. A pearl symbolizes the spirit of perseverance and beauty after suffering, which is fit for the spirit of girls.

Now that you've already known the reasons why giving a pearl to your daughter as a present. And you may have decided to buy one now. However, do you know how to choose a suitable set of pearl jewelry? Some guidelines for you to get the perfect item as following:

First, say no to imitation pearls. No matter to what person the gift will be given, genuineness is uppermost. A genuine pearl can present your sincerity and show your taste, so do not buy any imitation pearls, no matter how cheap they are. An imitation pearl is man-made, it does not have the precious history a real pearl possesses.

Second, be clear about the levels of price. You have to know that the real pearls which are grown in the freshwater or sea naturally are very rare and expensive. So they will surely bear a very high price. Do not make any effort to bargain over the price of a real pearl. If you can not afford the real pearl, you may choose the cultured pearls. They are not imitations but are grown in the oyster farms and the forming mechanism of them is the same as the natural ones.

Finally, how to judge a good pearl? There are several specifications which affect the cost of a pearl. First, the size. It is sure that the larger ones are more precious because the time of forming is much longer than the smaller ones. So the price is based on the millimeter size of the pearls. Second, the color and brightness of the coating of a pearl is also an important criterion to judge the pearl. A good pearl should have a distinct iridescence which make it apart from the rest.

Based on your professional judgment on a pearl, you'll surely find a perfect set of pearl for your dear daughter. She will be very pleased to wear the pearl to begin her new life after the graduation!

Precious Coral jewelry designs in market

Coral jewelry is a very classy yet classic look for any woman. Any piece of Coral jewelry instantly makes an outfit and a woman appear classy. Corals have a very regal air to them, like only the richest people in the world can afford to own them. However these days, Corals have become so affordable that almost anyone can afford them. A Coral is a very magical piece of jewelry in that it is a natural occurrence, which is painstakingly created by an oyster. Many ancient civilizations believed that the Coral's magic did not stop in its creation. The Chinese believed that Corals would fall out of the air when dragons would fight in the clouds. The ancient Romans believed that a gift of Corals would place you in the goddess Isis's good graces.

Since then Coral farms have been created to lend nature a helping hand. At these Coral farms, a small piece of mother of Coral shell is placed inside an oyster's shell to start the process of Coral formation in each oyster. Some of these oysters still do not create a Coral, but the chances of a Coral being created increases tremendously with this practice. The main Coral farms were originally located in Japan, but due to their population problems they are now facing a water pollution problem that has limited their ability to produce quality Corals in recent years. However, China has now moved into the forefront in the Coral farming market. Since the Chinese have developed their techniques the price of Corals has dropped dramatically. Now everyone can afford their favorite piece of Coral jewelry.

Now that you can afford a piece of Coral jewelry, you will need to know how to take care of it correctly. The most important thing to remember about Coral jewelry is that Corals are a natural substance, so they are very fragile. You should put your Coral jewelry on after you are completely ready to leave your house. Cologne, hair spray, and makeup can cause major damage to Corals, because they can dry them out. You should also not submerge Coral necklaces in water, because it will cause them to expand and stretch out the strand that keep them attached to each other. Most Coral jewelry is sold in a very nice silk pouch. The reason for this is Corals can be scratched very easily if they are kept next to other jewelry.

For this reason make sure that you keep each piece of Coral jewelry separately in their silk pouch away from all other jewelry. If the jewelry gets dirty then try to hand clean it with a soft cloth. If your Corals start to lose their luster, then just trying wearing them, because the natural oils from your body will renew the moisture in the Coral. This will cause the Coral to shine like it was brand new again.

What is a jade jewelry

The jade ring is the most ancient of all marriage traditions. The bride and the groom have exchanged rings since the Egyptians used the jade ring as a symbol of marriage. Before metals were discovered, jade rings had been made of braided grass, leather, bone and ivory. Today, jade rings can be anything from an inexpensive, plain brand to an

Many choose the metal for their jade bands or sets by matching them to their engagement ring. However, this is not necessary. A bride can wear her engagement ring on her right hand and the jade ring on the left (concerning Russia - vice versa). Also the bride and the groom can wear a similar style in different metals.

Yellow Gold is the most traditional of ring metals. Usually 14k, 18k, or 24 k gold is preferred. While 24k is the most pure, it is also the softest. As you are going to wear your jade ring every day, it is better to choose 14k or 18k gold, unless you do not have to work with your hands and there is no possibility to scratch the wring.

Platinum is a very stylish metal and also the hardest one. Platinum is not mixed with the lesser metals (such as copper, for example) that gold rings are. Though, a platinum ring puts you to a lot of expense.

A jade or an engagement ring with a precious stone is a rather extravagant choice. Here, you should consider the durability of the stone, just as the durability of gold. While softer stones might be more beautiful, they are, nevertheless, not the best pick. Of course, a precious stone jade set may be excellent from the point of view of singularity, but again, if you are a person who does a lot of activity with your hands, that isn't the best selection.

To help you make a decision, here is a list of common stones, and their hardness level according to the Mohs scale. (Mohs scale registers a stone's ability to resist abrasion; 10 is the strongest and 1 is the weakest. Anything less than a Mohs scale 7 is not recommended for an engagement or jade ring or set.
* Diamonds 10
* Rubies 9
* Sapphire 9
* Emerald 8
* Topaz 8
* Aquamarine 7.5 to 8
* Amethyst 7
* Garnet 6.5 to 7.5

If you are rich enough, you can, of course, afford a diamond or a platinum jade or engagement ring. And if you are not? Go back to your budget, weigh up your personal financial situation, though it is difficult to be practical when deciding how much money to spend on a jade/engagement ring, because what it symbolizes is priceless. This is where you can save or lose money. Don't be influenced to spend more than you can afford because of fear, a desire to impress anybody, or pressure from a salesperson, who may try to make you feel cheap or question your commitment.

Moissanite is a naturally occurring mineral, silicone carbide. It was discovered in 1863 by Henry Moissan in a meteor. Since there are almost no supplies of this mineral on earth, scientists set out to create synthetic moissanite. They succeeded and created such a good substitute for diamonds, that sometimes jewelers cannot easily tell the difference.

If women have always wore jade rings (as a symbol of married life and just as a lovely piece of jewelry), the practice of men wearing jade rings is relatively new. Up until the middle of the twentieth century, it was mostly only women who wore jade rings. When World War II broke out, and many men faced lengthy separation from their wives, man began wearing jade bands as a symbol of their marriages and a reminder of their wives. It was a gesture of love and affection that has survived into modern times.

Men do not have to worry that wearing a jade ring is too effeminate. Heavy rings with a thick solid band, are a popular choice. A Celtic-style engraving or a simple plain band could also be considered. When choosing your jade band, think whether you would like it to match with your bride's jade ring.

And now, the last hint. If a man definitely doesn't want to wear a jade ring, be it for emotional or practical reasons, there are some other symbolic ways of acknowledging his marriage. Firstly, he could wear a watch or chain engraved with a message from the bride. A more adventurous person can make a tattoo of a jade band around his finger. It certainly demonstrates the level of his commitment to his future wife.
