The most common reason relates to a story about how their jade protected them. Some were in car accidents that broke their jade bangle but they amazingly escaped without harm. Women have written about being seriously ill and in a hospital, when suddenly their jade bangle broke into pieces without any reason, and they suddenly started to recover.
There's an ancient Chinese saying : Jade protects the person who wear it.
While the women whose jade bangles broke truly miss their jade bangle, they feel blessed that the jade took the damage that would have happened to them personally.
