4th International Pearl Forum: Unexpected Pearls
After the large success of International Pearl Forums at INHORGENTA MUNICH in the last three years, a fourth Pearl Forum in 2017 demonstrated once again that it can bring together international speakers and be a place in which current global market trends are discussed and shared with a wide audience.
The theme for the 2017 edition focused on unexpected types of pearls, finding innovative ways of using pearls in jewellery and creative means to market them.
