Top 7 Jadeite/Jade Dealers or Retailers in Hong Kong

1) Jade Market
Location Map: Google Map location

Spread across two sheds is this market for all things jade. There are a multitude of small stalls and they all look like they are selling the same things. Open from 10 AM to 3:30 PM, the Jade Market is frequented as much by dealers as it is by retail shoppers and tourists. You won’t be disappointed with the quality and quantity of jade being sold by the more than hundreds of stalls here. The most common items to be poked through are jade accessories, including rings, necklaces, pendants, bangles and earrings, but expect to come across some more unusual finds as well.

The Jade Market is definitely worth a visit, but don't get carried away and be careful about what you buy and how much you spend. Watch out, and be ready to be stopped by some quite persistent vendors. Not all are annoying, but there are some really pushy sellers in there. You can find some pretty good prices on synthetic, man-made jade, but be a hard bargainer, and you can get a good price. Make sure you haggle the prices they ask for is crazy compared to what you actually end up paying.
