One of the first things that really amazed me about shopping in China was the concentration of the one product category in a single area. For example, if you wanted to buy electronics you would go to the electronics market where you’ll find streets of stores, stalls, and malls selling just electronics, Huaqiangbei being the example there. It’s no different with jewelry, and Shenzhen has it’s own jewelry market district packed with stalls, stores, and malls.
Located within Wanshan Shuibei Jewelry Park, which covers approximately 570k square meters, is over 500 different companies wholesaling and retailing all types of jewelry including rings, wedding bands, necklaces, earrings, bracelet and anything you could imagine. Here you can find products made from gold, silver, cubic zirconia, jade and much more at varying quality and prices.
The large market area is bordered by Tianbei 4th road, Wenjing North Road, Buxin Road and Cuizhu Road. In the area, you’ll find several large multi-story malls and street-level stores. Most of the wholesalers are located on the top floors with most expecting initial orders 3000RMB+, while on the lower, and street levels, small purchases are very welcome and the prices are still considerably lower than any retailers outside of the market area.
Some of the larger multi-level malls amongst the many in the area include:
Shuibei International Jewelry Trade Center on the corner of Tianbe 4th Road and Beili North Road
Shenzhen Jinli International Jewelry Trading Center on Tianbe 4th Road
Kingliving International Jewlery Trade Center on Beili South Road
Shenzhen Gold Plaza at 1 Shuibei Road
Tianbei Oriental Jewel International Jewelry Trade Plaza at Tianbei Garden Annex Building on North Wenjin Road
Remember, that’s just a sample of the many multi-level malls!
How to get there: take the Metro line 3 to Tianbei Station and go out exit C, walk straight ahead and on your left you’ll see some jewellery shops and the first large mall will be Shuibei International Jewelry Trade Centre.
Hotels near the jewellery market: actually there’s nothing great. 7 Days Inn at Shubei Jewellery Mall is a clean and comfortable basic option, another would be to stay at the four-star Metropark Suites at Dongmen which is right by Shaibu MTR Station just one stop away from Shubei MTR or a short taxi ride.
Address: Bordered by Tianbei 4th road, Wenjing North Road, Buxin Road and Cuizhu Road.
