Ancient jewellery and jade is a popular category that has steadily increased in value in recent years. They can be enjoyed, played, worn, and added value. In jewels and jade, beads as a category present different forms and meanings. The beads that can be collected now are roughly divided into: Central Plains culture beads, Tibetan culture beads and foreign cultural beads.


1. Central Plains Culture Beads

The Central Plains culture class beads are divided into high ancient, medieval, and Ming and Qing dynasties. Western Zhou Agate is one of the most popular types. Due to its practicability and aesthetics, Xizhou Agate is very popular among players. No matter what kind of beads you mix with it, it is harmonious. Due to the large demand, its price has also soared.

Something will be imitation of anything, and there are countless imitations of the West Zhou agate beads on the market. The surface of the authentic product has a warm luster, Baoguang is restrained, the color is bright and steady, unlike the imitation "full face thief light." All the holes in the old beads of China must be bright. When you look at the light, you will feel that there is a clear water inside. Some inner walls can see the spiral marks on the inner wall. This is the trace left by the slow drilling tools. The traces left by the fast drill bits of the modern tools on the new beads are obviously completely different from the traces left by the ancient craftsmanship.

2. Tibetan culture beads

Tibetan culture beads began in the Tang Dynasty and continued into the Qing Dynasty. The materials include bone beads, dZi beads, agate, turquoise, alfalfa, coral, and beeswax. Most of these beads are related to religion and have the role of amulets. With regard to Tibetan beads, we mainly talk about the collection and identification of Dzi Beads.

Dzi Beads are the most valuable species in the beads. People think that it has powerful energy. It is a treasure given by the gods. It has a lofty religious significance and can be used for disaster relief.

Judging by the scarcity and unique cultural connotation of Dzi Beads, it is a treasure worthy of collection, and the price has risen rapidly. The higher the price, the more people will be falsified. The dZi that can be seen on the market today is basically a replica.

To identify the old Dzi Beads, we must first look at its craftsmanship. The production process of the old Dzi Beads has been lost, and the production process of the original imitations is very different. The old Dzi Bead is opaque or semi-transparent with strong light. The middle hole is white, and the line texture is deep into the body of the bead. Unlike the imitation of the dZi, the line floats on the surface. The surface of the old Dzi Beads generally has the traces left by the bumps. It is often called the “weathered grain”. It looks like many irregular pits, such as the half moon shape. The hand touch is smooth, and the imitation is touched. of.

3. Foreign culture beads

Foreign culture beads are also a hot spot in the collection of beads. In the team that collects beads, there are many people who play foreign ancient beads. The number of people who collect West Asia beads is the most, because the beads are unearthed and the price is relatively cheap.

Others who collect glass beads collect Willis glass beads. From the 16th to the 18th century, Europeans used colorful glass beads to go to Africa to change ivory, gold, diamonds and other items. We call this kind of beads "African Trade Beads". ". When this kind of beads appeared in the Chinese market ten years ago, the price was quite high. A large-sized and good-quality "thousand flowers" glass beads were sold for 2,000 yuan. Because of the continuous flow of foreign beads into China in recent years, now The beads are up to two hundred yuan.
