Release Body: International Pearl Exposition and Auction
has recently been held in Guangzhou, China. Merchants and bidders,
both at home and abroad, were deeply impressed by the rare and
valuable pearl jewelry from
all over the world. However, it's hard to find the well-known
domestic Zhejiang freshwater pearls among the glittering jewels.
the fame as the "No. 1 global bidding", International
Pearl Exposition and Auction is held two or three times every
year. This year, we had the honor to hold the exposition and auction
in Guangzhou. It should have been a very good opportunity for
the local sellers to display their pearls without traveling abroad.
Nevertheless, some 40 local buyers came just to bid with those
of the same trade.

"China leads the world in production of saltwater akoya pearls,
freshwater pearls also account
for 90 percent of the world's output. But we had very few qualified
entries." This is nothing new but a reflection of the current
situation of the international pearl market. Since medium and
low grade pearls are in the majority in China, we only hold 10
percent of trading volume in the world's pearl market. Each year,
China mainly exported low-valued un-finished pearl beads and strands,
not high added-value pearl jewelry such as pearl
necklace, bracelet and pearl earrings etc. The absence of
Zhejiang Pearls simply reflected our embarrassment among the general
Chinese pearl industry.
to upgrade Chinese Pearls including Zhejiang Pearls becomes our
main concern. China has good weather and temperature for the pearl
cultivation. Based on these good natural conditions, our pearls
have good quality themselves. Therefore, low added value is the
root of the problem. Compared with the international technology,
we still have a long way to go in pearl processing and treatment,
such as bleaching, polishing and design.
we fall a little behind, we see a very good chance to increase
the value of our pearls. Union of Asian Jewelry has already been
founded in Guangzhou. And from now on, the International Pearl
Exposition and Auction will be held in Guangzhou every year. Jiangsu
and Zhejiang, China’s bases of freshwater pearls and pearl
jewelry, will have own platform for pearl exhibits.
