Special pearls from the September Hong Kong Show

I am a bit late posting about the September pearl buy but I didn't forget! September is the biggest show of the year for us because we select inventory for the Christmas season and that means a lot (and I mean a lot) of inventory. Hisano and I don't have much time to look for the "fun" stuff in September!

But that isn't to say we didn't have fun! We had so many friends that were at the show, and three people came just to join us; Chenai our director of operations, and Blaire and Sheri from Pearl-Guide forum! Blaire is the managing editor of Pearl-Guide News and Sheri is a long-time member who has made it to all the Ruckuses.

Sheri offered to help Hisano, Chenai and I sort and so I gave her just one job - sort out two lots of special metallic half-drill white pearls and select out just the pearls that screamed at her. We called them Sheri's Screamers.

This is a shot of a few of the screamers as she was pulling them out. Metallic is metallic - shiny is not metallic. These pearls are metallic. And they scream!

Sheri sorted out 185 grams, ranging from 6-9 mm pearls. To save you from doing the math, that comes out to six strands with a few extra grams to spare. Part of the reason I'm a bit late with this post is because I wanted to wait until we had the half-drill pearls fully-drilled and matched into strands.

.While those screamers are something else, the main standout to me were loose, beaded white rounds in big sizes. Freshwater pearls have never looked like this before. I ended up matching two strands in sizes 9.3-12.3 and 10.5-15 mm. BIG!

We also met with our friends who farm akoya pearls in Vietnam, and they are now so close to having those special baroque blue strands in our hands! We really had hoped they would be here before November 1st, but it looks like they might not arrive for another week at least.

Until next time!

    I’m also interested in those screamers. The 9 – 12 mm strand is amazing.

    The first batch of blues arrived yesterday! Hisano has that batch and is sorting away!

  • BWeaves

    I’m drooling. Those are lustworthy, and then you had to go and mention the blues, and now I can’t wait to see the blues.

    Please add me to the “list” to keep posted, both on “Sheri’s Screamers” and those elusive Vietnamese blue (and pistachio!) akoyas …

    Hi Paula,

    They aren’t on the website. He hasn’t decided what to do with them yet – waiting on Sheri’s input ;)

  • Paula

    Hi Jeremy – how can we find Sheri’s screaming strands on the PP website? Thanks!
