Woman faints after accidentally breaking £34k jade bracelet while trying it on at a shop in China (photos)

A woman visiting a market in
China accidentally broke a jade bracelet worth 300,000 yuan (£34,000)
while trying it on and fainted in shock.

This happened at a jade market
in Ruili City, south western China’s Yunnan province on June 27. She
dropped the ornamental green rock bracelet while trying it on and it
cracked into two after hitting the floor.
The shop’s owner
reportedly informed her that the bracelet was worth 300,000 yuan
(£34,000) and she fainted in shock. 
Eyewitnesses said the family
initially offered the seller 70,000 yuan (£8,000) in damages but he
refused, saying that was not enough. The bracelet was then valued by an
independent expert and it was said to cost around 180,000 yuan (£20,700)
– which the family agreed to pay.
