Pearl Society member and world traveler, Emily Christian reports on her recent visit to the Persian Gulf tracking the history of the world’s most valuable natural pearls.

Ms. Christian is the second Pearl Society member to gain access to the relatively inaccessible Dubai Pearl Museum.  The Bank of Dubai, where it resides, which former speaker Heidi Bohn described, has changed ownership.   It now features a segregated section for women’s banking.  Come and hear the adventures of this intrepid traveler.
