Have you ever wondered why the Chinese are obsessed with jade and gold? Today we will explore a famous local jewelry shopping mall within the Yuyuan Garden area with our local guide Lisa Zhu. Jewelry professionals will teach us about the different types of jade, the significance of the designs, and why it is so valuable. We will then continue by exploring selected gold shops. Lisa will explain the different occasions when gold is given as a gift, and we’ll get a peek at a studio where they design and create beautiful rings and pendants.
