Australian South Sea pearls.

The pearling process begins in the pristine waters off Australia's north-west coast, the domain of the wild Pinctada maxima oyster

Operating from ocean-going vessels, teams of divers scour the depths to handpick the solitary oysters from the seabed. 

The depth and radiance of natural beauty is what separates gem quality pearls from other pearls, and it is the rich quality of the nacre that has given Australian South Sea pearls such extraordinary orient.

'Orient' refers to the unique play of colours of a pearl's surface - but should not be confused with the colour of a pearl - it is a feature that cannot be replicated through any enhancement.
