Pearls are the most ancient and extraordinary gems known to humankind. Miracles of nature created by a living animal, they have mesmerized us since time immemorial.
And their allure is as strong as ever, judging by the multi-billion dollar industry they have become today. South Sea pearls – among the rarest and costliest types of cultured pearls available – are re-owned for their soft iridescence, satiny lustre, and large size.
Few people are aware that the most beautiful South Sea pearls are produced in Indonesia. In fact, Indonesia is the biggest producer of South Sea pearls in the world.
Yet Indonesian South Sea pearls have been hidden treasures until now, unknown to Indonesians and foreigners alike.
