The Provenance collection represents the very essence of Pearls of Australia – a journey to the birthplace of two different types of Australian pearls.
From the remote Kimberley coast home to the South Sea pearl, to the waters just north of Sydney where the Akoya pearl is grown, Provenance is a rare offering of two species of Australian pearls set together in one bespoke jewellery design.
Each piece in the Provenance range features a South Sea pearl grown at Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm hand-selected, matched and set alongside an Akoya pearl grown at Broken Bay Pearl Farm. With so few pearl farmers still cultivating Australian pearls and only one operating in NSW, Provenance enables the owner to behold something of exceptionally rare origin – a great Australian treasure.
Provenance is broadly defined as the ‘place of origin or earliest known history of something’. Pearls of Australia place a very high value on provenance, being one of the most important invisible virtues of pearl value – a guarantee of where the pearl was grown, the pristine environment in which it was cultivated, and the incredible journey it has taken over many years passing through so many hands from oyster to pearl; ocean to market.
In so many ways, our Provenance collection lies at the heart of who we are, and what we believe in.
