Galatea Pearls - Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Show

Posted by Kevin Canning on 9/17/2013 to News
While walking the floor of the Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Show we found ourselves  returning to the Galatea booth daily. Chi, the founder is a true artist and visionary, creating some of the most interesting pearls at the show. Some purists may cringe at the thought of carving up a perfect Tahitian pearl but you can't deny the skill and aesthetics of these one of kind pearls. I strongly suggest you check out Chi's website to view his entire collection: http://www.galateausa.com

Around 5:00am I started tossing and turning, equal parts of excitement and jet lag have left me unable to sleep. Today is day one of the Hong Kong Jewellery and gem show and I couldn't wait to see what’s going to be on offer this year. The trick to remember is, we have several days to enjoy the show and we can't possibly see everything in one day.

Cherry / Peacock Tahitian Pearls

Posted by Kevin Canning on 9/5/2013 to Products
It’s always fun to paw through large lots of Tahitian pearls looking for those rare colors but for the most part those are one off pearls (I’m still hunting for the perfect blue Tahitian for myself) and not something you can create a line of jewelry around.
