  • International Pearl Convention

    Quick question: what is THIS all about?

    Doesn't appear to have been a consequential event. The site remains unfinished, but the FLASH homepage is a must-view for real pearl fanciers?

      Convention took place in November of 2007 and superstars abounded.
      Speakers at the two day long technical sessions include Dr. Gaitone Cavalieri has now served as president of CIBJO for more than five years, Kenneth Scarratt Director of research for GIA Research Thailand and has 30 years of experience as a laboratory gemologist, Elisabeth Strack, from Gemmologisches Institut Hamburg, Germany, Stephen J. Kennedy Gemologist of the Gem Testing Laboratory of Great Britain. Nicholas Sturman gemological advisor of the Gem & Pearl Testing Laboratory, Manama, Bahrain, with experience more than 15 years in pearl testing, Shigeru Akamatsu General Manager, Sales Promotion Department, Mikimoto and Sutas Singbamorong Gem specialist Dubai central laboratory with experience more than 10 years in gemology had a lot of researches in gemstone and pearl.
      At the conclusion of the convention, it was proclaimed that the pearl industry would double in size by 2010. Given the unfortunate actuality, that may yet qualify the event as inconsequential.

          Yes, I'm going to have a international pearl convention too. Want to come? All the top people will be invited. The president of Divers Direct will be speaking on the decline of the nuclei trade. Then the owner of The Pearler will discuss the importance of timing when creating an online business. Followed by a discussion of the importance of optimism in business.




          Bring your own beer.

                Look at that. I have England and Australia already represented. Now it truly is international.

                I think I will invite Nick Paspaley, Robert Wan and Jeremy Shepherd. Whats the point without a few moguls. Come on Jeremy. We can do it at the beach and pretend were in Dubai. Without the jetlag. And you can be back at work by the afternoon.

                All we need is a date. And a cooler. And some bongos. Now thats what I call a conference..

                  You know, it's not a bad idea. How about an International Pearl Guide Convention? Do i towards the end of July, and I'm in. BYOBP (bring you own beverages & pearls). Schedule it so we can start at Mikey's beach and then all go to PP for the tour (oh wouldn't that be wild). The next day of course, no driving and conventioning.

                      Now that promises to be consequential!
