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.
My first order of business was to track down several "Holy Grail" ripple strands, for a few ladies that missed out the last time around. As I suspected the price had gone up, but with a little haggling I was able to get them back down to June prices, "Just this one time". Same as in June, these strands are available by pre-order only. If you're thinking of a strand, this is the time to get one as Grace pearl was very clear that won't be giving me the same pricing again -- EMAIL ME
Edison pearls are large bead nucleated freshwater pearls, produced by the famous Grace Pearl Company, the same company responsible for the Holy Grail Ripples. The prices in June for these pearls were through the roof, but with sluggish sales they have decided to bring them back down within reach. I sat down in front of 3 lots of 12-13mm "AAAAA" (yes that's five A's!) and picked out what I felt were 6 of the best. I don't have plans for these darlings, so please leave a suggestion in the comment section below if you have any.
