Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Show 2013 - Day 5

Day 5 and I'll admit my feet and back are not feeling good, but its the last day and our last chance to shop. Not surprisingly, this pearl with its $190,000 USD price tag did not sell, but can't blame them for trying.

Alana spotted these Akoya and South Sea graduated earrings. She worked so hard all week, I had to add these to her personal collection.

While walking the floor we found a few strands of giant free form baroques. These aren't classic by any means but for the right woman these will make a real statement.

I've received a few emails about the large dark purple Edison pearls I posted previously and decided to try and pick up a few more pairs. At this point in the show the lots were getting pretty picked over.

I didn't find what I was looking for in the pre-matched pairs so I went back over to Grace pearl to look through a few lots of loose pearls.

Things are looking up! I find a few single large pearls for pendants but only 2 lonely pairs for earrings.

Around 3:00 it was time to leave and I'll admit we were happy to do so, until next time that is...
