Hong Kong bling

Hong Kong is a tremendous shopping destination for the Chinese. Before going there, I was advised that there would be a lot of good deals, but to be perfectly honest I didn't see anything that appealed to me.

Lots of gold, mostly sold by weight, which is given in taels (about 37.5 g). The bracelet at front right is almost 7 taels.

These were neat--fossil ivory, carved from mammoth tusks. Mostly out of my price range; some of the pieces cost as much as a small house.
