Jewelry Accessories Market
You may already know that Yiwu jewelry market is the largest one in China. In fact, the jewelry accessories market here is even larger.
It includes three smaller markets: Xingzhong market, Jinfuyuan Jewelry Plaza, and E3 section of International Trade City.
It's lucky that these three markets are all close neighbors.
Xingzhong market is still an old day’s street market. Around 3,000 shops are sitting one next to another in 5 blocks. Above photo is taken from my office window.
Plastic beads, glass beads, crystal beads, acrylics, ribbons, threads... are shipped in each early morning, then shipped out to other jewelry factories in China, or delivered to Indian, Mid-east, Africa, and South America.
This market is not as "international" as Jinfuyuan Jewelry Plaza or International Trade City. Few overseas buyers go to this place.
But due to the low rent and long history, the price here is always a bit cheaper. The surroundings are less pleasant though.
Jinfuyuan Jewelry Plaza
Jinfuyuan Jewelry Plaza was built 2 years ago to meet the large demand of more jewelry and jewelry accessories booths. The 1st and 2nd floor now are nearly full. All together about 300 booths.
They are still trying hard to bring in more shops. But because of the worldwide economy turndown, they are facing more and more problems now.
I personally recommend this market. As it is new, still developing. The people inside are more hard-working. They don't have enough bad habits. Most of them deliver warm and pleasant service.
The whole surroundings are not as stuffy as International Trade City, or as crappy as Xingzhong market.
E3 section of International Trade City
E3 section of International Trade City is the home for another 800 booths. It’s full of jewelry accessories of all kinds and specifications.
The people there are more experienced with overseas buyers.
Sourcing Dos and Don'ts in Jewelry Accessories Market:
First you may go direct to International Trade City to have a quick browse. Although there are just around 800 shops, the variety is still the largest among those three.
Also because it's a small section of 800 booths, you can quickly finish browsing within one or two hours.
If you have more time, you can go to Jinfuyuan Jewelry Plaza for better service and better price sometimes.
The last one to go is Zhongxing market if you want to try some luck for even cheaper price. This market is just too large to browse, and you also need to walk from street to street.
Some shop owners frown at taking photos without asking for permission. So ask first. If they say no, you may need to leave them a business card.
Most of them don’t care as jewelry accessories are not that depend on new models.
Take photos as many as you can, and take notes effectively. If you think you can find all of their products information in their websites later, you should quit that idea quickly.
They do print their websites on the name card, and over 90% of them claim they have a website.
But once I had a test, and found out around 50% of their websites are totally unaccessible, another 40% have never been updated since the day they were born!
The beads with different color stripes are now hot, according to Miss Ou, an expert in beads business. 550 pcs in one plastic bag.
Here is a bigger picture:
Suppliers in Jewelry Accessories Market:
Miss. Ou, my old friend. You can always see her big smiles when you go to their shop. She has been in beads business for 10 years. Very experienced.
She can also speak some good English. I know now she's been working hard on it. Her goal is to wipe off the English language barriers after 6 months. That’s quite ambitious.
They come from Shantou, a far away city in Guangdong province, and set up their factory in Yiwu a few years ago.
Their prices and qualities are both good. My customers are always satisfied with the products they delivered.
