We were so honored again this year to play host for the fifth year in a row to dozens of our “Pearl” friends from around the world. For a long, three-day weekend, we participated in pearl discussions, talks, a pearl-laden party (the RUCKUS!) and of course pearl shopping!
This year, the festivities were held at an estate in Palos Verdes overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The weather was fantastic; morning haze for perfect diffused natural light to appreciate the true beauty of pearls, and sunny afternoons, which brought paradise-like sunsets.
For our friends that couldn’t make it this year, we have something special coming up! We decided to film all the talks, the discussion and pearl-friend interviews! We are busy with the editing now and the first video, a talk given by Mr. Douglas McLaurin of the Sea of Cortez pearl farm in Mexico, will be posted this week.
Since we have videos coming, I’ve decided to skip posting a full overview here, and instead share links to forum threads started my our friends who attended and a collection of photos posted on Facebook!
