Dear friends,

I know that this forum is not really about pearls, but well, I would like nevertheless to invite you to visit the expedition report I just put online on regarding the recent visit I did to a cultured south sea pearl farm in Mergui in December 2007:

I hope that you will appreciate the visit as if we found out that Mergui produce some interesting pearls, we were really touched by the Mergui people:


All the best,

Vincent Pardieu

Thank you Vincent!

They are some pearl lovers in this forum, I promise you.

Very informative article about Burmese pearls and today's production.
I enjoy the update as there is so little on Burmese pearls nowadays.
I had no idea that Tasaki played such a big role there too.

The gold pearls are magnificent and the food ( I love seafood) must have been delicious.... And so fresh from what I could see in your gorgeous pictures. The geography is stunning.
