Some amazing pearls from Hong Kong, June 2016

We made it back from Hong Kong and have finally started sorting out all the special pieces! As you may have seen from the blog post last week, Hisano and I were accompanied by Erin from our customer service team. She was responsible for the wishlist and had a great time being nearly overwhelmed by Hong Kong and the giant gem show. While she was there, she was interviewed by NHK TV! They only used a small part of the interview, but you can see her starting from 0.53 on the NHK website. June is not typically a "big buy month" for us as we enter the summer season, but we did find some special pearls. Typically the finest strands...

A few interesting pearl finds in Hong Kong

Sorry I'm late! Hong Kong was fantastic once again and it really is starting to feel like a second home. I love Hong Kong in March because the weather is so perfectly mild. Contrast March with the Fall show and it's like a spring day in the park vs a sauna set on high! We were fortunate enough to find several things on wish lists and of course our staples, and also a few things that just sort jumped out at us. Like these akoya! I have to say, I don't really know what to think of these. But I'd never seen akoya that looked like this before, so home they came. Hisano didn't give me too much of a...

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...

HK Show - Burmese South Sea, Tahitians & Vietnamese Akoya Pearls

We had a good time at the June Hong Kong jewelry show last month and brought back some special goodies! Before getting into the pearls, I think it makes sense to share a short bit of Burmese (Myanmar) Pearl history. Burma has a long history with pearls, both natural and cultured. For centuries, the native sea-faring population of the Mergui Archipelago known as Salons, were the traditional pearl divers. Pearls from the "Mergui shell" (a.k.a. Pinctada maxima) were some of the finest the world had ever seen. It's no wonder Burma was one of the first places where South Sea pearl farming was first introduced. In 1954, and Japanese pearl company headed by a Mr. Kikiro Takashima set up the first...
