    Jeremy- It sounds like the cruise boutique is doing well! I can imagine the pendants and earrings would be a hot item, too.

    Jaye- Mitsukoshi! Ahhh... There was a small Jewelmer display in a museum when I as in New York this spring. I purchased this leather bracelet which is a piece they make and donate some of the proceeds to clean water projects. Everything else in the case was $$$, but pretty to look at.

    Jeremy, I was looking for a ring for my Gold Harvest strand ( you know, that rampage you started?
    Sales lady said Japanese luxury tax cannot be redeem, unlike tax-free for tourists.
    Are you saying the quality of Jewelmer pearls here at their counter, are probably higher grade than say on Blue Nile in US, as they are not a true jewelmer boutique?
    I nearly pulled the trigger, but the ring was more societal, and I am more boho.
    My husband thought it was beautiful, the shade of gold was mesmerizing, and kept urging me to get it.
    I think he just wanted to get out of there!

    Yeah, Jeg- Mitukoshi ... Ahhh
    Itoya for stationary and pen... Ahhh

    Iwas actually looking for a slightly baroque ring, but they explained that they show only rounds and off rounds, some ovals.
    Their customer prefer that.
    Jeg, it sounds like we like similar things. If you ever come to Bkk, please let me know.

    The company who supplies Blue Nile is based on the East Coast. I know they have purchased from Jewelmer in the past, but that was for television shopping, so it's far from the quality you would expect in a Jewelmer boutique. I don't know if the gold pearls on Blue Nile are the same, but BN is not known for good value with pearls, just diamonds.

    Oh yes, Itoya! Love the cute papers and stickers!

    I only saw very nice high end things- strands, bracelets with a serious gold presence. Anything set using a single pearl incorporated a big, perfect, pearl. I would expect you would see very high end in the Ginza.

    I’ve never been to Bkk. I might need to add that to my list!

    Jeremy, you are making me want to go back for that ring now.
    I knew I shouldn't have started this.

    Just a smile: I don't know if they do the same now, but in the past, a holiday club, "club méditerranée", gave to customers plastic pearls removable necklaces, that to buy drinks in the camp without to carry any wallet, just necklace and bathing suit. Pearls had different colours by values, gold, black, brown, white. Gold was the biggest value, one pearl for a scotch (that before true gold pearls were known). But often, pearls were so much used than necklaces broke easely, in particular at time to go to the toilets... and then, a great loneliness moment... Except that 4000.000 yens would had been a good reason to change all the plumbing up to three kilometers around!

    I have seen that there's no authorised jewelmer retailers in Europe, why?
