In the qing dynasty, there were two rulers who loved jade. One was the qianlong emperor, who loved collecting white jade.

When the value of 420,000 liang of silver cixi jade bracelet today how to estimate?

Emerald watermelon is my favorite

Cixi has a jewelry room in the Summer Palace. Among the thousands of treasures, her favorite is a pair of emerald watermelons.

Why love jade alone

Jade in our country what kind of inheritance, cixi and why have a special liking for jade? In fact, the use and collection of jade in China is not as long ago as hetian jade, its initial value is not high. Jadeite from Burma area is also called jadeite, and hetian jade belongs to tremolite, which is a kind of nephrite. The two are widely different in producing area, character and fortune. Ji yun's notes on yuewei cottage records that jade in yunnan was not regarded as jade at first, just like beautiful stones like "lantian" and "tianhuang", which were barely called jade. But by the time "notes of yuewei thatched cottage" was finished, it had been regarded as a rare thing, whose value far exceeded that of hetian yangzhi jade. Ji yun also regrets that the price of jade has changed so significantly within 50 or 60 years. Notes on yuewei cottage was written in 1792, the 57th year of qianlong's reign, and ji yun died in 1805, the 10th year of jiaqing's reign. According to him, jade spread in Kyoto at that time for 50 or 60 years, that is to say the first introduction should be in the early qianlong years. "Yan takes spring wave, charming if drop cui" jadeite and jadeite products make court nobility people's new favor gradually, drive below them, folk also begins to notice this kind of burgeoning jade, price rises all the way. The bright and glittering jade ornaments complement each other with the bright personality and the luxurious cixi, which may be the reason why she likes jade so much.

How to convert the current value

Tian pengfei, chief gold investment analyst of guangdong gold company, thinks that if you want to calculate the present valuation of two pairs of jade bracelets worth 420,000 ta2 of cixi empress dowager silver, you should first make it clear that gold has a price and jade is priceless. If as jewelry jade, the price varies greatly due to personal preferences and regional habits. Because it was used by the empress dowager cixi, the bracelet became a relic whose price had to be auctioned off. Instead of using the original 420,000 silver taels.

Second, silver was a currency of the qing dynasty. At that time, there were copper COINS and gold COINS. The exchange rate between copper, silver and gold, like foreign exchange prices today, is often variable, not as clear as 100 cents per yuan. In the early years of daoguang, one or two silver COINS for a hanging, that is, one thousand words; By the time of the opium war in the 20th year of daoguang, one or two pieces of silver could be exchanged for 16,700 COINS. Since xianfeng, the price of silver has soared. One or two pieces of silver can be exchanged for two thousand two hundred words of COINS.

It is common to calculate how much money in ancient times is equal to how much RMB in modern times, measured by purchasing power. According to the calculation of 1 stone =100 jin =70 kg, and the grain price is calculated at 2 yuan/kg, the following average value can be obtained: 1 tael of silver: about 170 yuan.

Since gold and silver are no longer used as money, and silver has been promoted as an investment commodity in recent years, it is not scientific, logical or appropriate to simply measure the price of qing dynasty bracelets with the existing gold and silver prices.

Therefore, from this perspective, 420,000 taels of silver is worth about 71.4 million yuan.
