As one of the oldest civilizations in the world, China started producing jewelry around 5000 year ago during the rise of Yang-Shao and Lungshanoid cultures in the delta of river Yangtze. As the time went on their civilization grew, and new jewelry designs rose to such popularity that all the Asian surrounding countries soon found themselves under heavy influence of Chinese culture which preferred silver over gold, and jade over any other precious gemstone. Chinese jewelry designs focused greatly on the use of Jade, which was viewed as a stone who has best human qualities of hardiness, durability and beauty. It was thought that jade protects the bearer as a talisman, and it provided status symbol that indicated grace, dignity and morality of the owner.
