Jewelmer 35th Anniversary Gala

Posted by Alana Midlane on 9/25/2014 to News
As Kevin mentioned in a previous post, while in Hong Kong we met with Jacques-Christophe Branellec of Jewelmer. Following our meeting he invited us to attend Jewelmer’s 35th anniversary gala in Manila and tour one of his pearl farms. We didn’t hesitate to jump at the chance! We rescheduled our flights and with the help of his team were able to make all the necessary arrangements to attend both the gala and stay at Jewelmer’s beautiful Flower Island resort.

After a busy summer I'm back in Hong Kong to stock up on pearls for the upcoming holiday season and as usual, hunt down rare and exotic pearls. While I was a little concerned we would see more of the same from the June show, so far Hong Kong has not disappointed.
