    Dallas. March 18, 2021. The American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) has announced that it will produce two shows for 2021. These include the AGTA GemFair Las Vegas show, which will take place Aug. 24–26, 2021, at the Encore at Wynn Resort, and the new AGTA GemFair Denver, slated for Sept. 18–21, 2021, in conjunction with the Hard Rock Summit (HRS).

    AGTA GemFair Las Vegas was originally slated for June 2021 but was shelved until new dates and a new location could be confirmed. AGTA CEO Douglas K. Hucker expressed excitement over the location. “The great thing is we are in the same resort complex as the COUTURE Show and the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show (LVAJWS).”

      Sustaining Life with Pearl Farming

      One of the most important aspects of pearl farming is its inherent ability to protect and create more life than the one that was available previously. And what do I mean by this? When you start a pearl farm in a location, you begin with a resource that has already been “pillaged & plundered”, probably for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. As an example, we have the pearl fisheries of the Persian Gulf -whose pearls were adorning...

      ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL IMPACT OF THE CCCP

      There was a positive ecological aspect of this venture: the pearl farm itself acted as a gigantic breeding station for the pearl oysters. When you consider that this farm contained between 8 to 10 million pearl oysters and let us say that at least one-third of these had reached ****** maturity (2.6 to 6.6 million individuals), it is very evident to see the astounding positive impact that this commercial operation would have in restocking...

      THE FIRST COMMERCIAL PEARL OYSTER FARM IN THE WORLD

      It is at this particular crossroad that we find a Mexican-French Medical Doctor by the name of Gastón Vivès, attempting what very none had tried before: initiate a commercially viable, large-scale pearl oyster farm to produce shell and pearls. The Vivès family owned a pearl fishing armada in La Paz, Baja California Sur, and they were experiencing diminishing profits every year, thus wanting to revert this trend we find Gastón Vivès...
