    Default Pearls as One and CIBJO

    Hisano and I were in Bangkok last week for the CIBJO Congress and specifically for the Pearl Commission and editing of the Blue Book.

    It was quite the experience. Here is a short overview of one of my presentations along with Justin Hunter of JHunter Fiji and Shigeru Akamatsu of Mikimoto.

    One quick side note, I was referring to the search analytics of the forum when I referenced 25-45.

    As one who is outside of that age demographic, I appreciate the clarification...I think.

    Great article!

    That makes me a child, lol!

    What I was referencing in the talk is that according to Google, nearly 50% of the visitors to Pearl Guide are 25-44. People as young as their early 20s are doing Google research about pearls. I think that's pretty awesome!

    I think it's 1,000% awesome that there's a resurgence in interest in pearls among the 25 - 44 age group, and that we are so lucky to have Jeremy to educate ALL of us

    It's great that there is more interest, but it's not reflected in what I see in B&M jewelry stores.
