    Ikr! So I am cooling off for a bit.

    I only paid 8500 rmb for the nice very very light green icy one at similar size. Why this is suddenly 20K rmb is crazy. CNY I think. Also, my fault. I kept asking for pendants. So I think they are on the up in prices.

    I've been looking at these for FAR too long and I can't see one bit of difference. Not even a teeny tiny bit. Go ahead ladies, tell me how wrong I am. I'm used to it. :lol:

    They are good in design. I have 5 coloured rabbits, clouds and 4 green cabs and asked how they should be set. They drew this.

    Girls, I have to come out as a major lurker here. I'm living vicariously through you. I had never been exposed to jadeite bar two antique pieces with minuscule low quality chips on them. Now I realize that I have to have small imperial green cabs. Pity I'm too chicken to even imagine communicating in chinese:oops:

    My adventurous Burmese jewellers found another livestream on Facebook and are buying unpolished jadeite to test the waters. They are way cheaper than finished goods. Since they only bought small stuff to test, the polishing fee each is only rmb20.

    I asked Number 5 to set my pendant like yours and at first, she said no never seen before. But later, it was all sorted. If they can do this, I will buy more loose stuff.

    @suzanne2 , The price difference is quite big.

    The Imperial Green clocks in at 45 000 rmb.

    The Icy Yang Green costs 18 800 rmb

    Top one. If bottom one is comparable in price, you should spring for a really glassy colourless piece carved by master.
