Hello PG friends !
I am back again after a long break away from Pearl guide, I was so busy with my book (4000 years of history of clasps) and there will be lots of pearls in it too.
Well I took a break and went to Baselworld last March (Basel Switzerland), the largest jewelry fair in Europe.

I have been very very lucky to have the opportunity to see, touch and photoshot the necklace with the biggest pearls of the world. An I will show many more amazing and incredible pearls.
Well in Baselworld, everything starts with flowers, and there were lilly of the valley in mid-march ! Stay tuned
Update : For the ones who don't know me, I apologize for my english, so I'm used to post photos as often as possible, and you can see here many posts with lots of amazing photos. If you like photos on pearls, I put again the links on other photo reports I made by the past:

How old is this pearl? Play again!

Monday's post : a pair of bracelets with natural pearls interspersed with faceted diamond rondelles. See the delicate colors and luster.
The previous pendant, I think the biggest pearl was around 2 cm hight.
More to come...
