This is one of the largest jewelry stores I have ever seen. It covers 3 floors with Gold, Platinum and Jade. The gold is mostly 24 carat jewelry, because this is the Chinese tradition. The gold and platinum jewelry is sold by the gram at the official government rate. You pay mostly for the gold, not for the workmanship, so it is sold at bargain prices compared to US prices.
If you can't find what you are looking for here, just walk outside. There are many very large jewelry stores on this street.
What to buy: 24 carat Gold, Jade, and Platinum are sold here.
What to pay: You pay by by the gram here. Each piece carries a weight tag. The unit price is listed on a sign on the wall. They have calculators present a each counter so you can calculate the price.

Xinyang Market lies under the Shanghai Science & Technology Museum (I believe they call it Ku Chi Kwai (phonetic)). Anything with a name brand on it is fake so beware but this is the place to get cheap stuff to take home with you. All the shops inside are selling the same items so if they won't take your price just go to the next one. There's a section of the market that will tailor clothes for you. One of my friends had her wedding dress made there (exactly as she wanted it).
What to buy: Anything you want, at the end of the trip I barely cared what I was buying anymore, if it seemed like a deal I bought it.
What to pay: Here's what I bought and the prices paid:
4 Suits tailored, 450 RMB each.
Golf Clubs (these I didn't buy but I was offered a set for $1,000 RMB)
T-Shirts 20 RMB
Green Lasers 35 RMB each
Silk Table Runner 20 RMB
Tea set 85 RMB
Fake Lacoste/Ralph Lauren Polos 30 RMB
Large Chess Set 140 RMB
Medium Chess Set 100 RMB
Metal Chopsticks (x5) 40 RMB
Go Set (game) 140 RMB
Flask 80 RMB
Large hard shell suitcase 200 RMB
Rolling Carry-on Samsonite 150 RMB
Cashmere Overcoat Tailored 500 RMB
Silk Wine Bottle Bags (x5) 40 RMB
Oil Paintings (~3'x5') 250 RMB
Anyway, if you're buying lots of things always shoot for paying less than you did before and eventually you'll see how low you can go before nobody is willing to sell it to you.

The DFS in terminal 2 (the new terminal) of Pudong Airport is quite good.
I've also seen what looks like a DFS in the Jing'an district of Shanghai, on Jiangning Road (near Xin Zha Rd). From Nanjing Road West, that's about 6 blocks north on Jiangning Rd, on the left hand side. I've never been inside though. (MAY 2010 - I've been to the DFS on Jiangning Lu; overall it's not impressive, doesn't have very much and prices don't seem that good.)
