From Mindanao, the southernmost major island in the Philippines
The ‘South Sea’ refers to the tranquil waters of Australia, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
The clean waters of the South Seas, with an abundant food supply of plankton – the oyster’s favorite food, provide the perfect environment for South Sea pearls to grow. These pearls are among the largest commercially harvested cultured pearls in the world. They have a satiny luster and come in colors rarely seen in other pearl types.
These beauties are often referred to as the “Queen of Pearls.”
South Sea pearls average 13 mm in size. Color varieties include white, cream, silver, yellow, and deep gold.
“Perfected by nature and requiring no art to enhance their beauty. Pearls were naturally the earliest gems known to prehistoric man”
