Q: Is the expensive silver and stone jewellery in Beijing's Tibetan shops real?

Many of the Tibetan shops around Houhai and Nanluoguxiang sell silver necklaces upwards of 800rmb with no bargaining allowed. I really like Tibetan jewellery but have developed such a suspicion towards buying things here, afraid that they're fakes. Does anyone have any experience buying Tibetan jewellery here?

Yes or may be. because every expensive silver and stone jewellery is very costly compared to other imitation jewellery.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
