1. Are jewelleries popular in China?
Girls normally wear all kinds of jewelleries such as rings, necklaces, bracelets, ear-rings or ear studs(n. 耳钉). Honestly, adequate and proper jewellery and ornaments elevate(v.提高，提升)a girl’s image and add extra charm to her. And when the jewelleries are expensive ones, her status and identity will be shown and more confidence will come automatically to her. Besides, on some special occasions like a banquet or a business meeting, which require ladies to be dressed elegantly, jewelleries prove to be necessary and vital companions.
Generally boys don’t wear jewelleries. But that was in the past. Nowadays, boys enjoy having their ears pierced(打耳洞的说法) and wearing one or two ear rings. It is beyond me(我无法理解。). Maybe they feel cool when they have some ear rings on.
2. What type of jewelleries do you like?
Well, platinum (n. /ˈplæt.nəm/ 白金)and silver ones are good enough to me. Such materials are elegant and economical. Besides, these materials won’t cause inflammation(n. 炎症) to skins easily. You can simply wear them all day. Pearl ones are good too especially the milk white ones. They are elegant and gentle and wearing them always make you feel graceful.
3. Have you sent jewelleries as gifts?
Definitely. Last June when it was my girlfriend’s birthday, I got her a rose gold necklace. It was a gorgeous one，I should say. The necklace was made of gold particles, very small ones, whose diameters, I think, were only less than one millimetre(n. 毫米). And the pendant, a heart shaped ruby, was gorgeous too. It cost me a fortune but I was glad she loved it.
4. Are jewelleries expensive in China?
That is interesting. Each product can come in different prices according to its design, brand and material.
For a ring, if it is a hand made one but with famous brand and material of diamond and a marvellous design like, aurora, you will always pay more for a ring. On the contrary, the price won’t be too high.
In general, if you buy one jewellery from a big supermarket or a specialty store(一个专卖店), the price varies from several hundreds to unbelievably high. On the other hand, some accessory stores provide beautiful and cheaper ones, qualities of which can’t be guaranteed though.
