FROM THE WHOLE WORLD DISCOVER THE VARIETY OF THE CULTURED PEARLS

Regular purchasing trips to Japan, China and the South Seas ensure our warehouse always contains a top-class range. We stock cultured pearls from Japan, Tahiti, Australia, Indonesia, Vietnam and China. Our range includes freshwater, Akoya, South Sea and Tahitian cultured pearls.

They can be purchased as a finished designer necklace, loose or strung.

Akoya

Most cultured pearls come from Japan. There, off the coast of the southwest of the country and off the coast of China, the Akoya oyster (Pinctada fucata) flourishes. Akoya cultured pearls are considered an absolute classic among pearls. They are often smaller than other kinds of pearls, but have the finest lustre.

Size: usually 2 to 9 mm in diameter
Colour: from gleaming white, light pink and subtle golden hues to a silvery grey.

South Sea

In the last few years, increasingly large and impressive cultured pearls have been emerging from Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines. There, they are cultivated on remote pearl farms in huge South Sea
oysters (Pinctada maxima), often called “silver-lipped” as the inner edges of the shell are a bright silvery-white. They are only rarely completely round: South Sea cultured pearls possess a unique beauty and their size also makes them extremely precious.

Size: up to 20 mm in diameter
Colour: white, silvery grey to a deep gold

Tahiti

In the clear, turquoise-blue lagoons of the French Polynesian atoll, the large, black-lip pearl oyster (Pinctada Margaritifera) enjoys ideal living conditions: warm water, light, plenty of oxygen and plankton. Inside it grow the rare Tahitian cultured pearls, with their mysterious gleam. Its colours are like the shades of a dark rainbow. An intense black with a hint of iridescent green is considered especially valuable. They come in many different shapes: round, oval, tear-shaped or baroque.

Colour: black, dark or silvery green, aubergine, bluish or green
Size: 8 to 15 mm in diameter
