    Hong Kong based Trio Pearl Co. Ltd was founded and operated by the enigmatic Samy Chow. Based in the Peninsula Hotel, Kowloon, Samy shot to fame in 1994 when he bought the most expensive jade jewel ever auctioned, the Princess Nina Mdivani jade bead necklace for $4,272,000 million at Christie's Hong Kong. This exceptional price, achieved 2 years after Christie's established the first jewellery auctions in Hong Kong, signaled the arrival of Hong Kong as a major new auction centre. Today, Christie's Hong Kong has the highest turnover of jewellery sales in the world.

    Items which contain rubies or jadeite originating in Burma (Myanmar) may not be imported into the U.S. Please be advised that a purchasers inability to import any such item into the U.S. or any other country shall not constitute grounds for non-payment or cancellation of the sale. With respect to items that contain any other types of gemstones originating in Burma (e.g., sapphires), such items may be imported into the U.S., provided that the gemstones have been mounted or incorporated into jewellery outside of Burma and provided that the setting is not of a temporary nature (e.g., a string).
