Cultivation of South Sea Pearls
By JonJiang

South Sea pearls, one of the world's most precious gemstones, have conquered hearts with their unique luster and incomparable beauty. And the culturing of South Sea pearls has brought this natural wonder into our lives.

South Sea pearl cultivation takes place in the Southern Ocean region, with Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines being its main sources, covering a vast expanse of oceanic and coastal waters. The climate and water conditions in these areas are very suitable for their growth. South Sea pearls come out from the Pinctada maxima or the white-lipped oyster. Cultivators place the oysters in the cultivation area and give them the proper environment and food. They regularly check and manage the growth of the oysters to ensure their health and growth. The process of pearl formation is a miraculous natural phenomenon. When a strange object from the outside enters the oyster, the oyster will secrete nacre to encapsulate the object and gradually form a pearl. This process takes years and the nacreous layer is thicker than other pearls, making the cultivation of a perfect South Sea pearl an arduous task.

South Sea pearls can be categorized into two types: golden pearls and white pearls. Golden South Sea pearls are mainly characterized by their unique golden hue and are mainly found in the waters of Australia and the Philippines. Golden South Sea pearls are highly prized for their rarity and precious color. White South Sea pearls are the most common type of South Sea pearl and come mainly from Australian and Indonesian shellfish. The South Sea pearl is known for its large size and high quality. It is generally 10-15MM in diameter, with the largest visible at 18MM, and the largest South Sea pearl ever made was 21MM in diameter. as the culturing techniques for South Sea pearls continue to improve, the production and quality of pearls has increased, but the overall resource is still scarce, so the price of South Sea pearls has been rising.

It represents nobility, purity and elegance. Whether as a delicate necklace, ornate earrings or an elegant bracelet, the South Sea pearl brings a distinctive charm and elegance to its wearer.
