    I was asked to share this information with the Forum...it seems that Pearl-Guide.com has been blocked by China, so Chinese users have been unable to access the site.

    Here is the original note:

    Thank You so much for your great efforts to promote global pearl business! Would you mind publishing the following news at Akoya Pearl and Pearling Industry News of Forum for us? We cannot log in pearl-guide.com to post any articles without VPN installed.

    Akoya Pearl Farm in China

    Bigwell Pearl Farm, located in Xuwen, Zhanjiang, Guangdong, is the leading Akoya pearl cultivating enterprise. They continue to focus on inserting 6-6.5mm, 7-7.5mm sizes nucleus into oysters.

    Professors and teachers from Pearl Research Institute of Guangdong Ocean University have been examining and demonstrating the innovative Akoya oyster for a week.

    The Akoya pearls in the hand had been cultivated for 100 days, their nacre has become visible, luster looks shining.

    The general quality this year is better than previous year. The reasons are attributed to nice weather, temperature is stable , without typhoon, without natural calamities.
    Our yearly harvest is 250 kgs. The resulting Akoya pearls are 6-6.5mm,6.5-7mm, 7-7.5mm,7.5-8mm.

    Miss Pearl Cai and Mr Vigor He visited Bigwell Pearl Farm on August 22nd, 2021. They talked with farmers and the teachers about current business on Akoya pearls, freshwater pearls, Mabe pearls and South Sea pearls in China.

    • Chinese Pearl Farming Update for 2021
      by CortezPearls
      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?

    • Mabe Pearl Grading - 7) Dome Height
      by CortezPearls
      Part of the beauty of a Mabe pearl comes from its “dome” (height). When a Mabe pearl displays a low dome it most closely resembles a piece of mother-of-pearl shell than an actual pearl. Unfortunately, many Mabe pearls today are grown too flat, due to the intrinsic characteristic of the host shell: Pinctada shells are usually flatter than Pteria shells (the shells being much more concave) which does not allow for the use of tall implants, since these will touch the opposite shell and will cause the...

    • Mabe Pearl Grading - 6) Nacre Quality
      by CortezPearls
      The most important factor here is nacre thickness. Many Mabe are cultured for short periods of time (4 months) to obtain the most perfect shape, but at the expense of their nacre thickness and durability. On the other hand, there are producers that grown them for too long (over 12 months) and end up having pearls that have thick nacre, but their shapes are not standardized, and they may display one or more of the surface imperfections we discussed in the previous paragraph. There is usually a middle...

    • Grading Mabe Pearls -5) Surface Quality
      by CortezPearls
      As with other pearls, surface quality is an important attribute: the cleaner the surface is, the more desirable the Mabe is and more valuable too. The usual surface imperfections found in these are:

      • Missing Nacre: whitish, bite shaped marks.
      • Spots, pinpricks: dark or light-colored pin-prick markings.
      • Rippled surface: these are markings caused by the growth of the abductor muscle on top of the blister pearl. This marking causes the appearance of wavy...

    • Grading Mabe Pearls - 4) Mabe Luster
      by CortezPearls
      Mabe pearls are not very known for their great luster, although many of these pearls may display amazing luster. Mabe usually display a more silky or subdued luster, especially in the Pinctada species and is most shiny in the Pteria species…but luster is usually enhanced by means of a final polishing, done with a high-speed cloth-wheel and a polishing compound, although much care must be taken to avoid excessive polishing that leads to heat and may ultimately damage the pearls by “burning”...
