Size and Weight: Is Bigger Jadeite Jade Better and More Expensive?
Jadeite is commonly measured in millimeters. When all other quality factors are equal, the value of cabochons, beads, and bangle bracelets increases with size. Small differences in size can make a big difference in value when it comes to top-quality imperial authentic jade. In most cases, larger sizes of raw jade do not significantly increase its value.
The purpose can have such an impact on the value that small jade jewelry can be much more expensive than a larger-scale jade sculpture. A Neolithic vessel called Jade Cong with sacred human and animal faces from Liangzhu culture, is one of the most expensive ancient jade items.
