    Is a gem lab report not enough of an aid when you want to buy a precious gemstone (diamond,
    ruby, sapphire & emerald)? Is buying “top commercial grade” or “from a famous locality” not a
    wise choice? Do join this seminar if you wish to avoid misconceptions!

    Speaker: Mr WONG Chun Kit David, BArt, EMBA
    Cofounder / General Manager at Hong Kong Pearl Cultivation Association

    Pearl is a gemstone that does not require much processing to make it shine. However, the dialogue
    between a local pearl farmer and a local jewellery designer will tell us more about how “Made in
    Hong Kong” can make pearls “shine” even better, both technically and aesthetically.
