    It was a splendid multi-arts runway showcase that was set in a play directed by Robbie Carmona and Elmer Lape?a. Angel Aquino and Arnold Reyes played the main characters in a story based on the elements. (Angel seen below as a goddess.)

    The show included the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra, the University of Santo Tomas Singers, prima ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde, beauty queens Shamcey Supsup and Venus Raj along with a dream group of dancers and models.

    With delightful assistance by the gowns of designer Rhett Eala, the golden Jewelmer gems were the true stars of the show. Jewelmer upheld their place as the finest of haute joaillerie with the most lavish and spectacular jewelry ? dramatic, yet wearable.

    As fabulous as the spectacle was, it couldn?t obscure Jewelmer?s true beauty -- their people ? warm as the lovely Philippines itself. They pour their hearts into sustainably growing their pearls -- the most beautiful of organic gems.

      The arrival of the Iberian Conquerors

      The Native Nations had no real interest in establishing a commercial venture in pearl fishing and we understand little to nothing of the way they fished for pearls, since most of the information was either lost or destroyed during the conquest of Mexico. The rich plunder of the Conquistadores was sent to Spain and later dispersed all over Europe. The most significant information we have on the subject comes from the period of colonization of northwestern...

      Hello dear Forum Members: With spring comes renewed energies and pulses, the recent system upgrade also allows me to start adding up content that we believe is necessary to keep the forum growing and renewed, making it the #1 Source for Pearl information on the World-Wide-Web for years to come. I had this idea of a column years ago, when I still published "The Sea of Cortez Peal Blog", which went "black" after a massive Russian hacker attack (the importance of updating your system...

      A new generation of jewellery and gemstone professionals, more diverse geographically and culturally from the generations that preceded it, is poised to transform the trade. This is in no small part because the composition of its members more precisely mirrors the consumers who both buy and aspire to buy fine jewellery products.

      What characterizes many in this peer group is that they are first generation jewellers, who chose to join the industry not through family legacy,...

      Since unrecorded time, man has obtained many bounties from the world’s oceans: food, shells, corals, sponges, seaweeds, and the most desirable of all of these were the beautiful mother-pf-pearl shells and their valuable treasure, Pearls.

      Mexico has four species of pearl oysters inhabiting its coasts, two -the larger sized- on the Pacific side: the Panamic Black Lip...
