A Custom Beauty

Every time Hisano and I head to Hong Kong we bring "the wish list." We have items on the list that have remained there through multiple shows. But every time, we spend a lot of our time trying to find those extra special pieces. One of our friends had seen a necklace a Mikimoto that she was hoping to duplicate, only better. The necklace was three rows of akoya strands, graduated in size from the center strand to the outer strand. These sorts of necklaces can be difficult to make. Hisano made something similar in 2.5-5.5 mm akoya pearls for our Tokyo wedding in 2012. I thought this piece would look amazing if we were able to match three strands...

September Hong Kong Jewelry Show Recap

Hisano and I finally returned from Hong Kong last week and have been busy sorting pearls as the the shipments come in. We spent a full eight days in Japan and Hong Kong filling the vault with new freshwater, Tahitian, South Sea, akoya and even Galatea carved pearls. On the first night of the show, we met up with our friends from Pearl-Guide.com, who came from quite literally around the world to see the show. We hosted a dinner on Knutsford Terrace in Tsim Sha Tsui. It was a great kick off for a successful week. Our friends from Pearl-Guide.com's discussion forum The September show is the busiest one for us because we are stocking for the holidays, so we...

We are Heading Back to Asia Next Week

Next week, Hisano and I will  be heading back to Asia for the biggest pearl-buying trip of the year - the Christmas buy! We will be heading first to Japan, followed by a week in Hong Kong for the large, September jewelry show. This show attracts nearly 52,000 buyers from around the world, including a lot of our friends from Pearl-Guide.com's forum, turning the week into a family reunion of sorts. The September show is split into two parts; one at the Asia World Expo at the Hong Kong International Airport, and another at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wanchai. The most important show for us is the one held at the Asia World Expo. This is...

A few notable pearl finds

Following Hong Kong, I spent a week in Europe so we are just now getting around to organizing and categorizing all the pearls Hisano and I were able to find. We were able to collect quite a number of the metallic white drops that sold out in a day last April, and Hisano is currently making as many pairs as possible before reaching out to those awaiting their earrings and pendants. While we found quite a lot of amazing pearls, a few really stand out as being truly different. One strand of akoya was unlike any I've ever seen. We've often carried natural-color silver-blue, golden and natural-white akoya, but this strand is Pistachio. The pearls have a natural, pistachio-green body...

Just finishing up in Hong Kong

We've just finished up the annual June jewelry fair in Hong Kong, and while the show was not one of the largest, there were still pearls aplenty. I am headed to Europe from here, so I won't be back in Los Angeles until the first week of July. Hisano is headed back now, many of the new pearls in hand! For a quick recap, we did manage to collect a few more large, metallic white drops. We didn't find as many as we were hoping to, but those on the waiting list for pendants should finally get their pearl! Apart from the metallic whites, we found a lot of truly unique, exotic freshwater pearls (click the image to the left)....
