Our winter vacation was over and I'm back to the office.
Most of Japanese companies start today Jan. 5th.
New crop auction has been started since last December.
Price of fine quality has kept high price so far for all sizes.
There are shortage of fine quality in Akoya pearls, so big company as MIKIMOTO pay high price.
Midium and lower quality are not started yet.
Most of Japanese pearl manufactures predict that price would be down as market price and strong Yen.
Anyway we expect good quality pearls in recent years.
That's only way to make customer's happy.
