Pearl Shopping

By practor

Has anyone had luck pearl shopping in Doha?  What is the going market rate?  I have no idea how to begin bargaining, but would love to purchase a few strands of sea and freshwater pearls - dark and/or white, but good quality.

I am not sure the exactly place to buy the pearls in Doha, but you could consider to buy the gemstone beads online, which will be very easier for you. Here I would like to recommend you a wonderful pearl supplier, who is the leading pearl wholesaler and they only supply high quality freshwater pearls and seawater pearls: http://www.stunninggemstones.com/cn/products/Wholesale-Pearl-Beads.asp

Thank you so much for the info. When I return, I'll be giving her a call. For now - I just have 'til tomorrow. :(

I'm not a big fan of pearls either, but I'd like to give some as gifts. Can't wait to get back - although I miss my USA something fierce... You have fun this hot, sticky summer! I'll be thinking about y'all! :)
