    Pearls in the Web of Life – Part 3

    In our last entry, where we learned that the outside of pearl oysters acts as a small ecosystem in itself, but now we will “dive deeper” into the oysters themselves to find that this pattern repeats itself -in a kind of Hermetic understanding of the “As is Above, is Below” law- but with different actors involved. And, if you ever had the opportunity to stare into a live and open pearl oyster, you would begin experiencing a...

  • Is the Pearl I found in my Clam/Oyster/Mussel Valuable?

    Is the Pearl I found in my Clam/Oyster/Mussel Valuable?

    This is a Special Educational entry, but I believe it may be of value to some of our new visitors; it originates from an email I received just a week ago, but I have received this type of e-mails many, many times before... so, I will take this opportunity to have this information to the widest audience possible. The e-mail would say something like this:



    And this is a remarkably interesting thing to find out, and each pearl would be a unique case, a unique study in itself....

    CIBJO’s just-released Pearl Special Report for 2021

    DIY Project: Make your very own Pearls in Half!

    You have probably seen those photos of beautiful pearls that have been "cut in half" so you can see their inner structure, and you probably wondered how those are worked: are they sawed off? maybe a machete?


    Well, wonder no more! This little video explains in detail how you can make your very own, very nice...pearls in half.

    You will need:
    1. Sandpaper sheets, one of each: 60 (very rough), 80 (medium grit) and 220 (fine grit, also called "water

    Pearls in the Web of Life - Part 2

    In a sense, pearl oysters might be a “small ecosystem” of their own, a self-contained biome where a tug of war ensues and leads to eventual stability. But why does this happen? And does it hurt the mollusk? One of my Marine Biology teachers -Dr Fernando Manrique, a friend of Jacques Cousteau- once told us that the Ocean was teeming with Life, and that the hardest thing for many lifeforms to find was an “available apartment”, a place to settle and that would help them avoid being tossed...

  • CIBJO webinar to examine the impact of online trading on the pearl sector

    Jewellery Industry Voices' October webinar to examine the impact of online trading on the pearl sector

    The COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be a watershed moment for jewellery's pearl sector, as it has for most other parts of the industry, initiating changes that most probably are irreversible. The migration to online trading of loose pearls and pearl jewellery is certainly one of them.

    The pearl sector has always stood apart in the industry, and this sometimes has been...

    Jewelmer's Pearl Farm Challenges during the Pandemic - September 2021

    Four decades ago, Jewelmer was established by French pearl farmer Jacques Branellec and Filipino entrepreneur Manuel Cojuangco. The brand has now become synonymous with exquisite jewelry made with the most lustrous cultured pearls in the world: golden South Sea pearls.

    Jewelmer’s largest pearl farming challenge in this pandemic lies in its cultivation cycle. The majority of the company’s pearl farmers located in the Philippines were unable to physically be on the farms,...

  • Chinese Pearl Farming Update for 2021

    Chinese Pearl Farming Update for 2021

    From our friends in China, unable to post the information directly due to Pearl-Guide being actively blocked in this Asian country:
    Pearling News:


    NOTE: I edited the text a bit for clarification, but more relevantly, we have a couple of questions

    1. What will this mean for the availability of freshwater pearls?
    2. If saltwater pearl production increases dramatically, what will this mean for pearl productions elsewhere?
