Beijing Pearl Company

Did you know that Beijing was an important center for pearls, both fresh and salt-water pearls? We continued our commercial tour of Beijing with a visit to the Beijing Pearl Workshop. It is actually a great tourist trap where an attractive salesperson demonstrates the opening of a freshwater oyster loaded with pearls. You then have the opportunity to shop for pearls. Look out moms and sisters, you may have a present coming!
