  • South Sea Pearls

    Australia has been the main source for the world’s largest and most valuable pearls since the 1800’s. These famous South Sea pearls are the product of the world’s largest pearl producing oyster, the Pinctada Maxima.

    South Sea cultured pearls normally range from 10 to 15 millimeters, with very rare examples reaching 20 millimeters. Only cultured pearls from the Pinctada Maxima oyster have the beautiful color tones known as “orient” with shades ranging from white to silver pink to dark gold.
