South Sea Pearls

South Sea pearls are distinguished from all other pearls by their magnificently thick luster. South Sea pearls are primarily produced in Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines. They are the most popularly used in jewelry and are the ideal choice for necklaces due to their round shape and glowing natural luster.

South Sea pearls are amongst the largest commercially harvested cultured pearls in the world. Most harvests produce a wide range of sizes from 9 mm to 20 mm, the average size being 13 mm.

South Sea pearls are produced by two Pinctada maxima, the silver-lipped and the gold-lipped Pinctada maxima pearl oyster. Due to the size of Pinctada Maxima oyster, South Sea pearls are able to grow large in size. South Sea pearls can be commonly found in white, sliver, and golden color, as well as in pink and cream. These beautiful pearls have a unique, satiny luster that comes from the rapidly deposited nacre and warm waters of the South Seas.

Dominant in the pearl kingdom, South Sea pearls possess the beauty that will last for generations.
