The most revered and highly prized pearl in the world, The Australian South Sea Pearl is cultured in the Pinctada maxima oyster from the pristine coastal waters of northern Western Australia.

The perfect marine environment, combined with the most modern pearling techniques and practices, combine to produce the largest and finest quality pearl.

The pearls are a result of an intricate operation in which the oyster, over a period of two years, coats a spherical nucleus with a substance known as ‘nacre’.

The Australian South Sea Pearl, due primarily to the thickness of this coating, has a natural lustre unequalled by any other pearl.

These pearls are grown in freshwater lakes, rivers, and ponds. Australian Freshwater pearls are found mainly in northwest Australia, Broome area, and cover a wide range of color and shape than any other pearl type.

Although freshwater pearls are the most commonly produced pearls, their unique shapes and wide range of colors combined with their attractive prices and charming character, have made them a favorite among jewelry designers, shoppers, and pearl connoisseurs alike.

In addition to the traditional white body color, these pearls come in a rainbow of natural pastel colors such as lavender, pink, and every shade in between. Most freshwater pearl information notes their varied shapes, including potato-shaped and stick pearls, rice-shaped and button pearls, coin-shaped and drop pearls, off-round, and round pearls.

While a perfectly round freshwater pearl is extremely rare and the highest quality available. Their sizes range from tiny seed pearls measuring 1 or 2 mm in diameter to 15 mm and larger.

Australia's remote north-western Kimberley coast, where the Great Sandy Desert meets the sapphire waters of the Indian Ocean, is home to the giant Pinctada maxima or silver-lipped pearl oyster shells that produce the finest and highly-prized Australian South Sea Pearls. Australia is the only country in the world that uses wild oyster stocks. To ensure its sustainability, the pearling industry operates on a government-regulated quota system that sets a maximum number of wild stock pearl oysters that can be caught each year from the Eighty Mile Beach, south of Broome in the state of Western Australia. These wild pearl oyster beds represent the last wild commercial fishery for Pinctada maxima oysters in the world.

Australian pearling companies have been conscious of the need to protect the oysters’ habitat as there is a strong co-relation between Kimberley’s pristine environment and the production of high-quality pearls
