Australian Pacific Golden Collection – Complete Set

Nacre is the lustrous iridescent substance which is secreted by the oyster to form the shiny inside of their shells. Our bioscientists went to work to see if we could help Mother Nature along a little. By extracting a seed pearl from young fresh oyster shells and speeding up the process by which the nacre coats the seed pearl, we were able to produce the breathtaking 12mm Australian Pacific 18” Necklace. Golden beauties. They are also less porous so you don’t have to worry about perfumes or cosmetics discolouring this necklace like you do with regular pearls.

In a more ecologically friendly approach, the Australian Pacific pearl seed is extracted from fresh oyster shells and then organically micro-coated in the laboratory with the same nacre that coats our naturally grown pearls.

Just before 1900, in a small isolated town called Broome Australia, fishermen came across the rarest oyster a giant named the Pinctada maxima. This world’s largest oyster contained the voluptuous South Sea Pearl—the most sought after pearl in the world. After this discovery, Broome soon became the dominant pearl trading post in the world and literally 80% of all worldwide pearl trading passed through Broome. A trip to Broome.

We took the long trip to Australia to study the famous white lipped oysters that produced magnificent pearls that are often 11-14mm about 8 times the size of a standard cultured pearl. Not only did these oysters produce our rare South Sea pearl but they also produced tremendous amounts of mother of pearl or nacre.

Nacre is the lustrous iridescent substance which is secreted by the oyster to form the shiny inside of their shells. Our bioscientists went to work to see if we could help Mother Nature along a little. By extracting a seed pearl from young fresh oyster shells and speeding up the process by which the nacre coats the seed pearl, we were able to produce the breathtaking 12mm Australian Pacific 18” Necklace. Golden beauties.

This pairing of science and nature results in extremely large spheres 12mm but they are much more consistent in shape than ordinary pearls that have to be extracted from 4-5 year old dead oysters. They are also less porous so you don’t have to worry about perfumes or cosmetics discolouring this necklace like you do with regular pearls.
