Types of Pearls

South Sea Pearls

Cultivated in Australia, Indonesia, the Phillippines, Thailand and Mayanmar. Considered one of the more exclusive of all cultured pearl varieties. South Sea pearls are known for their extraordinary size and satiny lustre.

Tahitian Pearls

Cultivated in French Polynesia, South Pacific, Cook Islands, and Fiji. The exotic color palette of Tahitian pearls makes them one of the most unique of all cultured pearl varieties. Ranging in color from light grey to midnight black, with pistachio, aubergine and blue in between.

Freshwater Pearls

Cultivated in China, Japan and the United States. Freshwater pearls are easily cultivated from freshwater mussels rather than saltwater oysters. Their unique shapes and gentle pastel colors make them perfect gems for those on a budget.

Keshi Pearls

Cultivated in Japan, Australia, French Polynesia, Indonesia and the Phillippines. Keshi pearls, though not nucleated cultured pearls, are created by accident as a result of the culturing process and thus must be considered cultured pearls. Their unusual shapes and sizes are best used in unique jewelry designs.
