Jade is known as the emperor of Yuzhong. When higher and higher market prices gradually distance the distance between jade and ordinary consumers, recently, some investment products known as “ancient jade” began to sell in the market. However, is there really an expression of “ancient jade”? What should you pay attention to when collecting them? Where are their real market values? Is the jade collection as new and old as other works of art?


The market in the Qing Dynasty "multiple treasures" appreciated nearly 7 times in 10 years

Jade is the favorite of Asians. The jadeites on the auction floor are divided into two categories according to the age. One is the old jade ornaments and jewelry in the Qing Dynasty and the Republic of China. The other category is contemporary jade jewelry ornaments, in which the auction of Qing Dynasty jade is far less than the contemporary jade.

"The price of jade in the Ming and Qing Dynasties is indeed not as high as the current price of new jade, because the ordinary jade in the Ming and Qing Dynasties pays attention to the color does not pay attention to the species, water, and the modern jade is about the water color, so the price of the jade in the Ming and Qing Dynasties is naturally more modern than Jade." Li Wenpeng, who began collecting jade in the Ming and Qing Dynasties in 1997, is a Tengchong person. He has more than 2,000 pieces of jade jewelry since the Ming and Qing Dynasties. He said that his love for the Ming and Qing emeralds originated from his childhood father and Tengchong's inherent jade culture. The edification. One of the most proud works to date is a string of Qing Dynasty's “Duobao” jadeite purchased in the countryside in 2004. At that time, the price was 120,000. At the beginning of this year, there were more than 800,000 bids. “My psychological price cannot be less than 1.5 million. ."

This string of "multi-treasure string" in the middle is like a wishful appearance, there are a number of practical pendants such as ear spoons underneath, green, workmanship is not as modern as fine, can not see the traces of machine carving.

Li Wenpeng said that if this string of jadeites selects better water-grown materials according to the eyes of modern people, then the market price will far exceed 1.5 million yuan. Unfortunately, people at that time did not value the water, "the price of Ming and Qing jade Compared with the contemporary jade, there is another reason for the work. Now the machine carving looks smoother and the craft is more beautiful, which is more suitable for the aesthetic of the current market."

Jade button, jade jade, jade waist button... The use of jade in the Ming and Qing Dynasties is still related to practicality, so the beauty of jewelry is not the same, Li Wenpeng said, jade is also called Burmese jade, and Tengchong ( The ancient name of Tengyue is geographically adjacent to Myanmar. Since the middle of the Ming Dynasty, Tengchong to Myanmar’s Mizhi Branch has opened a trade route called “Jade Road” or “Baojing Road”. When it was most prosperous, Tengchong jewelry trade accounted for almost 90% of the world's gemstone trade, and it declined after the historical changes and wars. But to this day, Tengchong is still engaged in the jade industry and still has tens of thousands of people. The Ming and Qing Dynasties brought together the ancestors' obsession with the pursuit of beauty and art, and integrated the ideological life and extraordinary creativity of the working people. The sediment formed a unique jade jade culture, with the value of antique collection as a cultural heritage and historical sedimentation.

In Li Wenpeng's experience, the Ming and Qing Dynasties were cheap before 2008. Many times, thousands of dollars can buy good jade, and sometimes even a few hundred yuan can buy green jade jewelry, but started in 2009. After receiving market attention, a large number of collectors have shot, especially in the past 10 years, the price has soared more than 10 times. "It is difficult to receive the Ming and Qing emeralds when it comes to the market. The best place to collect the Ming and Qing jade is Tengchong. Beijing, Kunming has a bit of antique market, but there are few other places."

Identification of "old" jade does not listen to the story by instrument

In the past month, people from all over the country have been asking for the identification of full-color jade. It is also said that the family has passed several generations of Ming and Qing jade. The identification of jade does not need to listen to the story, put it in the instrument, whether it is a cargo or a cargo. At a glance... A microblog of a nationally registered jewellery quality inspector in a province is full of helplessness. She said that some people who hold b+c goods do not even believe that they are fooled, but also hold some identifications similar to those given by Dr. xx. The book must be said to be "ancient jade".

"The collection of jadeite is not new and old, and there is no such thing as the ancient jade. The jadeite appeared only at the end of the Qing Dynasty. Because the Qing Dynasty Cixi loves to be widely promoted, so the ancient jadeite said." Yunnan Province jewelry and jade quality technical supervision and inspection Xiang Yonghong, the national registered quality inspector and national registered appraiser of the institute, said that at present, the b+c jadeite that has been treated has been found on the market, and some colors are ridiculously false at first glance, because the story created by the other party is very vivid, Someone is fooled. Therefore, to remind consumers that the jade collection, whether old or new, should go to the national authority quality inspection agency to detect, rather than listen to the story.

Li Wenpeng recalled that in fact, as early as 2004, he had bought a group of artificially made jade a few years before he entered the old jade collection. At that time, I bought 5 jade fingers and 4 fistulas at a price of 38,000 yuan. The result was fooled. Since then, I have learned the lesson and carefully studied some of the characteristics of the old jade, such as the obvious difference between pure hand-made and modern processing techniques in terms of texture and eye-catching.

Li Wenpeng concluded that the old jade and the new jade are mainly work, and some designs are unlikely to appear in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It used to be purely hand-made, and there is no such fine craftsmanship. For example, in the aspect of eye-catching, the middle of pure handwork is certainly not so smooth and smooth. There is also no polished Ming and Qing jade, the surface created by hand is not flat, and the hook line is not pulled low once, and there are folds in the middle and rough lines.
