Dear gemstone lovers,
days at trade fairs are exciting days, and they are often full of surprises! In June, at the Jewellery & Gem Fair, I had a chance to experience that once again. I wonder if you can guess what it was that made my appearance in Hong Kong so special this time. Apart from the many interesting discussions, it was fascinating to see how little time it took for word of the extraordinary beauty of the coloured gemstones I’d taken with me in my treasure chest to get around: ‘word-of-mouth recommendation’ is certainly the most fitting expression to describe the considerable crush round my stand in the Grand Hall!
