I bought a pure jade ring (no gold or silver) for about 30 bucks. It was very translucent but still very pretty. While I was showering, I set it aside and then it fell in the tub and cracked into several pieces. I find it a waste to just throw it out and buy another. I want to super glue it back together or bring it to a jewelers who can maybe add some silver pieces but, is it considered back luck to wear jade once its been broken?

Thanks in advance
To those who are saying that jade is strong and it does not break… what the hell are you talking about? Anything that is carved out of any ornamental stone can break, especially since the ring I had was pure jade, there was no metal involved! To get a better understanding of what it looked like, here you go, http://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Green-Jade-Gemstone-Band/dp/B000BUBTP4/ref=pd_bbs_1?ie=UTF8&s=jewelry&qid=1206693944&sr=8-1

only difference between mine and that was my jade was higher quality and cost me about 6 times that.

First poster, that’s because you have no knowledge of it so move away cos it’s my turn to speak. Moreover, you’re not a Chinese nor an Asian. Stressing more on the Chinese though.

Well, I have to admit it’s a small part of one’s Feng Shui. As long as a harmony environment is concerned.

Anyway, when a Jade breaks, it means something. icon razz To those of asian culture and who follows feng shui? Either it has protected you from the evil spirits/bad lucks or something awful is yet to come.

Do not super glue it back though. Lol. Cos the element used isn’t friendly with it. Something like that. I don’t know how to explain it better. @@

Some old Chinese ladies I know just fold it in a cloth and keep it aside. If it still looks ok and you’re still able to make something with it, then go bring it to the gold/jade smith to make something out of it.

You can also ask their opinions on it though. If they are extremely experienced then you may want to listen to them instead. XD

But if you insist on keeping it, I suggest you clean the stone. Soak them overnight to -recharge- them.

I still keep my broken crystals though. Cleansed and recharge them. Why? Because they still hold some powers in them.

EDIT: EXCUSE ME, PEOPLE. HELLO!? I am an Chinese! And I use stones & crystals. And I have Jades as well. >.>

Breaking a Jade DOES mean bad luck.

The Chinese have MANY superstitions, if you, Westerners do not know.

Jades do break as well. It’s fragile, alike other stones. The fact that her Jade is only 30 dollars may mean that her Jade may be of the lower grade but it’s still a Jade. And it still serve the same purpose alike any other Jades.

And Jades are expensive, for your info. Very expensive. Maybe the guy who sold you the Jade never told you what Grade it was or he was just bluffing you on it’s grade or quality.

    Feng shui refers to architecture and furniture not to jewels, and feng shui is not a mystical eastern philosophy as people tend to believe.

    Feng shui is basically a interior decoration trend from east, and it has been wrongly interpreted as sort of mystical, stupid people with compasses and stuff that really need to get a life!

    Pure jade? 30 bucks? Cracked in the shower?

    I think that wasnt real jade! Jadeite or Nephrite!

    Dont wear jade for reasons of supersition!

    Feng shui has nothing to do with jewellery or jade unless you plan to install a massive jade boulder in your garden in a place that might block energy lines?

    No.
    I’m not quite expert on feng shui but when a Jade piece (especially Jade that wear on the wrist or pendant) is broken, a bad event has been rid off.

    Putting back the broken jade piece may have lost its purpose, but if you still want to use it, that’s ok with that.

    first the chinese culture, which devised fengshui, do not have superstitions like the western world – the chinese do not believe that when you break an expensive jade ring, it is a bad luck.

    the chinese do believe that they need to work hard to have everything they want in life.

    fengshui is used to maximize luck. so, superstitions is not necessary. because with fengshui, chinese can live carefree working hard everyday.

    therefore, there is no such thing as superstitions in the chinese culture. there are many belief systems, but the chinese do not consider these as superstitions.

    Like what the other answerers have already mentioned, feng shui has nothing to with gems such as jade. Feng Shui is more on the proper orientation of basic things, particularly the house. Where the front door should face, proper location of stairs…etc. Gems such as jade fall under charms and crystals and is a totally different field of Chinese beliefs. With regards to the jade ring you bought, I believe it was not a pure jade. For what I understand, jades are resilient gems and don’t crack or break that easily.
