A NEW CHAPTER EMERGES
In 2009, we made an industry changing decision to open the doors of our Pearl Farms to the public – to what was previously a very secretive industry. Our aim was to create true transparency around the nature and cultivation of the finest and most sustainable pearls and connect people to the amazing places in which our pearls grow.
Today, we welcome over 10,000 excited visitors a year to our farms, who become completely immersed and positively enriched in the many facets of the Australian pearling story, from it’s ancient beginnings to today’s modern pearl farming techniques.
After spending the past decade watching what was once a thriving Australian industry almost completely disappear one of our greatest privileges has been to help create new opportunities for Australian pearl farmers by engaging in an entirely new way with the next generation of pearl appreciators, as we delve into the many incredible facets of this rare and precious gem.
