Tucson Show 2016 and Other News from our Pearl World

Tucson Show 2016 and Other News from our Pearl World

The Tucson show was, as always, exhilarating and exhausting! It is  such a treasure to chat with customers who we’ve known for decades and fun to meet the new ones too. Memories of the first five days are a blurr of pearls and invoices. Each night brought a different dinner of pearl traders, rare stone dealers, entrepreneurs, designers, travelers, and very entertaining people. As always, a huge thank you to Jeremy and Hisano for having us to the Pearl-Guide dinner!

Our first batch of Japan Kasumi pearls from the 2016 harvest arrived home with Fuji just before our Tucson show. On the patio overlooking the desert mountains, I put together the first strand. It sold with in the first couple of hours of opening!

Sometimes being in the booth for days knowing the whole town is buzzing with treasure is challenging.. but when friends stop by to share extraordinary pieces.. like this 150 ct. natural wild found horse conch pearl I forget about the outside world.

Stay tuned for many new wild found natural pearls coming to our loose pearls section soon!
Including pearls from the Spondylus princeps, and a strand of giant clam pearls..
as seen in pearls of the week on Pearl-Guide.com
And of course no Tucson Gem Show is complete with out a bizarre purchase or two.. this year’s winner was a vintage set of hand made gold jewelry set with elks teeth.
