    My ice hockey tournament addled brain kept wondering why HK stored all their pearls in boxes upside down ... until I realized the bags of pearls were on the ... ceiling??? LOL, here's the right side up version:

    Such interesting details, Katbran-- and photos. I look forward to more of your posts on the show.

    I can't see the attachment in post #15 even if I click on it. Try posting it again, maybe smaller?

    And we worry how we store our pearls. The pros have plastic boxes and bags will tons of pearls all rubbing up against each other.

    First of all Iíll show you a pearl office ! Many are here in Kowloon in high rise buildings . A few of my favourite stops have moved out quite a ways and require a taxi , so Iím going to catch them at the show . Hopefully they will have replenished some stock this weekend. Attachment 65745 they all are the same , metal shelving with bins full of lower end and trays with the higher end . Huge bags are stacked against the shelves and all over the floor ! This is one little corner of one room . This company has two separate work areas with offices and a large open area with trestle tables for sorting creating and matching .

    ooh just started following your instagram.. i love seeing all the pics!!! amazing
    !!! i studied in hk before.. I wish i was into pearls back then..

    Thanks for flipping the photo, CathyKeshi. I kept wondering why they would put those heavy boxes upside down...
