Jade is considered as Taiwan’s national pride with many meanings far beyond that of just a stone. It is believed to eliminate any bad spirits and to bring good luck and fortunate to whoever wears it.

To wear this gemstone beautifully and stylishly, just buy a piece of jade jewellery. Popular options include earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. Among those, jade bracelets are recommended by locals as it is believed that wearing jade on the wrist can benefit the heart.

In terms of color the darker pieces are meant to be better. Therefore if you want to bring back the very best piece available, it is recommended that you go for a darker shade of green, as opposed to a lighter shade.
