A trip to Australia reveals the wonder of giant golden pearls

Just before 1900, in a small isolated town called Broome in Australia, fishermen came across the rarest oyster ” a giant named the Pinctada maxima. This world's largest oyster contained the voluptuous South Sea Pearl ” the most sought after pearl in the world. After this discovery, Broome soon became the dominant pearl trading post in the world and literally 80% of all worldwide pearl trading passed through Broome.

A trip to Broome. We took the long trip to the South Pacific to find the famous white lipped oysters that produced magnificent pearls that are often 11-14mm ” about 8 times the size and 8 times the price of a standard pearl! Not only did these oysters produce the rare South Sea pearl, but they also produced tremendous amounts of mother of pearl or nacre. Nacre is the lustrous iridescent substance which is secreted by the oyster to form the shiny inside of their shells. When nacre secretions are deposited around the pearl seed they build up to form a full sized pearl.

Our bio-scientists went to work to see if we could improve upon Mother Nature's process a little. We sped up the process in the lab by extracting the seed pearl from young oyster shells. We then coated these natural seed pearls with nacre from the inside of the giant shells, and were able to produce the breathtaking hand-coated Australian Pacific Necklace.

Golden beauties. This pairing of science and nature results in extremely large spheres (12mm), but they are much more consistent in shape than ordinary pearls that have to be extracted from 4 to 5-year-old oysters that are dead. They are also less porous, so you don't have to worry about perfumes or cosmetics discoloring these pearls like you do with ordinary pearls. In a more ecologically friendly approach, the Australian Pacific pearl seed is extracted from fresh oyster shells and then organically micro-coated in the laboratory with the same nacre that coats naturally grown pearls.
