Japanese Akoya cultured pearls temporarily strands

We usually export Japanese Akoya pearls necklace by temporarily strands as picture.

Custom charge import tax when somebody import pearls.
If pearls are temporarily strands, these are material and custom would charge import tax for lower rate.
If pearls are made up necklace with clasp, these are Jewelry and custom would charge import tax for higher rate.

This picture is fine quality 6.5-7mm, 7-7.5mm, 7.5-8mm, 8-8.5mm temporarily strands.

International Jewellery Kobe 2013

International Jewellery Kobe 2013 was held May 22nd to 24th.
I visit last day.

I didn't see much oversea buyers.  Japanese Yen has been weak recently, however it looks that Japanese Yen is still strong for oversea buyers.
So most of visitors were Asian.

I couldn't see much of top quality and under 6mm in Japanese Akoya pearls.
Japanese economy has been good, so top quality would be short this year.

Happy New Year 2013!

Happy New Year 2013!

We hope new year 2013 would be good for you.

We are back to work today.
We keep supplying good quality of merchandises this year too.
Japanese Yen has been getting weak against US$ and Euro since end of last year, it's a good sing for pearl export business.
