Pearl Recommendation for Different Age


Golden South Sea pearls are produced by the "gold-lip" variety of the Pinctada maxima, which is a general South Sea pearl oyster. Although their color is stunning, as if made from spun gold, the color is completely natural. More commonplace in the South Sea among pearls are white, cream and silver. However, golden pearls are very rare; less than one percent of Pinctada maxima oysters produce nacre of this color! They are grown primarily in Australia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. The first attempts at cultivating South Sea oysters were made in the Philippines in 1917, and those islands are still a primary producer of these luxurious gems.
