Should I wear my jade bangle on my right wrist or left wrist?

One of the questions I get regularly: should I wear my jade bangle on my right wrist, or my left wrist?  Which wrist is best for wearing a jade bangle bracelet?
Your left wrist is closest to your heart, and if you wear jade the traditional way for wellness and qi balance, then the left wrist is the best wrist for a jade bangle bracelet.

In the past, only wealthy women could afford to have jade bangle bracelets.  And wealthy women didn't have to work for a living.  But in our modern every day living, wearing your jade bangle bracelet on your dominate arm could expose it to more possibilities for damage.
So take that into consideration when deciding which wrist to wear your jade bangle on.

And you do need to decide which wrist you want to wear your jade bangle on before you purchase a jade bangle bracelet.  That's because most women's hands and wrists are not the same size.  And a few mm size difference can make a big difference how your jade bangle fits.

I personally wear my every day jade bangle all the time on my left wrist, because I like it closer to my heart and my left is not my dominate wrist.  Since I wear jade for health and wellness, when I need a different color of jade for balancing my qi, I wear either a jade pendant with the qi energy, or wear another jade bangle on my "other" wrist.  Sometimes I even wear two jade bangles on the same wrist, with a gold "spacer" bangle between. 
For example, when I travel I want to wear deep deep green "black" jade for protection, both physical safety and from contamination.  So I either wear a black jade pendant, or one of the Chinese jade "black" jade bangles on my right wrist.

If you are a jade bangle lover, you might want to wear more than one jade bangle at a time, so you can wear two or more on the same wrist.  Be careful because if they hit each other just right (what I mean is "just wrong!) they may crack or break.  I like to wear a "spacer" to protect them.  I have two 24K gold slender bangles I sometimes wear between the two bangles.  But I prefer to wear a jadeite beaded stretch bracelet between two jade bangles.  The natural color of the jadeite beads "goes" with almost any color of jade you have. 
And looks and feels awesome.


  1. Super blog and beautiful bracelet!! Love the charms you have used!

  2. Thank you for your comment. Younger Chinese women in China love jade, but don't want to wear the jade bangle like "Grandma wears". So they like a more modern way to wear jade.

  3. I bought a nice jadeite bangle for myself here in Thailand. I really love it. Im wearing it on my non-dominant hand which is the same wrist i wear my watch on. Love that musical sound it makes when it touches the watch.
    They say that if some harm is to come to you then the jade bangle will break thereby keeping the injury from happening to you yourself. i like that sentiment.
    Love your bangle BTW. What is the carving of?

  4. The musical sound is called "chiming". The finer the grain of the jade stone, the higher the "chime". The sound is also a signal to your brain, raising your endorphine level, and helping you to be mindful. I've heard many stories from people who wear jade about how their jade protected them. If you wear genuine, natural jade, and it breaks for "no reason", examine what's been going on around you because the jade may have taken a blow that was meant for you, like accident, heart attack, stroke...something that could have caused injury to you. Thanks for sharing.
    The carving on my personal jade bangle in the photo is bamboo, symbol of flexibility and withstanding difficult situation, and a bat, symbol of happiness. The jade stone, color and symbolism is wonderful to me.

  5. I wear green jade bracelet on my left wrist when I need protection or relief from mental stress. And then for luck and finance assist I wear my same bracelet in right hand wrist.

  6. Can I wear pixui gold bracelet black at right hand

  7. Wear it on the wrist that feels be qi energy for you. Left is usually related to heart, right is often related to protection.
