    Pearls- Colour: Pearls which are a strong white, or have a slight pink hue to them are more desirable than those which are yellowish or creamy. Pearls can be dyed to most colours, although natural colours are more valuable than the dyed equivalents. A good natural colour can be as valuable as a white Pearl.- Shape: Baroque Pearls (irregular shaped) are lowest in value, with round & perfectly symmetrical being the most desirable. - Lustre: The lustre is the brilliance of the pearls, the greater the lustre the more valuable the pearl. - Surface Quality: Bumps, blister and flaws will lower the value of a pearl, the surface quality will be affected by the thickness of the nacre. - Nacre: Nacre is the outer coating of the pearl, formed around the irritant within the Oyster/Mussel. The thicker the coating of nacre, the better and more durable the pearl.

  • BUSINESS TIPS

    Top tips for success!

    Effective Thinking part 2Set goals. To achieve success goals are essential for setting priorities, separate what you need to do into important/urgent (must do), important/not urgent (should do), not important/urgent (distraction) and not important/not urgent (waste of time).

    Lay out tasks and work on a time line. Successful people begin with a good plan for time, what must be done? What are the goals? Whats critical and important and whats not? Whats the time line? Many people

    are seen as lacking time management skills because they dont write down the important sequence and leave something out.

    Manage your time constructively and effectively. Plan your time be time sensitive and value time. Figure out what you are worth per hour and attach a monetary value on your time. Work out your three largest time wasters and reduce them by grouping activities and using efficient communications like e-mail and voice mail for routine matters. Make a list of points to be covered in phone calls; set deadlines for yourself; use your best time of day for the toughest tasks.
