White South Sea Pearl Information:

The limited production of White South Sea pearls coupled with the fact that they take longer to grow and are farmed in the volatile open ocean make this verity is the most rare and luxurious of all cultured pearls. The White South Sea pearl has become an iconic symbol of wealth and sophistication worn by the most elite and powerful women in the world. 

Origins:

The white south sea pearl is primarily farmed off the northern coast of Australia and in Indonesia, regions home to an indigenous species of oyster known as the Pinctada Maxima or "the silver lipped oyster". Although pearls are farmed in both locations Australia is the leader in high quality production, which is why all white south sea pearls on Pearls.com are Australian.

Colors, Sizes, and Shapes:

South Sea Pearls are the largest of all cultured pearls ranging from 9-17mm and in rare cases even larger. The South Sea pearl often has a very healthy and thick nacre coating around the implanted mother of pearl nucleus. There is a wide range of shapes harvested from this pearl verity including Round, Near round, drop shaped, button shaped, oval, and baroque. The majority of South Sea pearls are off round to baroque but in rare cases symmetrical round pearls can be found and demand a premium. As the light passes through the rich layers of nacre beautiful overtones of blue, silver, green, and red can appear on the surface of these pearls. 

South Sea Pearl Value:

Within each pearl type the valuation is dependent upon the quality factors of each individual gem however within the world of cultured pearls the value of each pearl type is based on the pearls availability, demand, and rarity.

Golden South Sea Pearls, the epitome of luxury.

In the world of cultured pearls Golden South Sea's are the king. These luxurious gemstones are the largest of all cultured pearls and have been prized for their rare natural color. South Sea pearls are an iconic symbol of status and sophistication.

Why are Golden South Sea pearls so valuable?

The value of pearls is based largely on two factors, the desirability and the availability of the pearl. The golden south sea pearl is extremely rare, very difficult to produce, and highly sought after throughout multiple continents thus determining the high market value of the gemstone. It takes up to 5 years to create a single pearl and due to the volatility of the tropical region in which they are created farmers often encounter many difficulties such as typhoon and other predatory marine species in and around the pearl farms. 

Where are Golden South Sea cultured pearls from?

Golden South Sea pearls are farmed mainly in the southern region of the Philippines, an ideal location due to the nutrient rich waters and indigenous species of "Pinctada Maxima" or South Sea Pearl producing oyster. The Philippines is an archipelago made up of 7,107 individual islands surrounded by some of the most bio-diverse waters on earth second only to the Great Barrier Reef. The islands surrounding the pearl farms create barriers from the open ocean yet in-climate weather and tropical storms any typhoons can create major challenges for pearl farmers.

How to grade Golden South Sea Cultured Pearls.

Each verity of cultured pearl is graded based on the following virtues, size, shape, surface quality, color, and luster. Golden South Sea pearls are unique due to their warm natural color which ranges from a light Champaign to a deep gold. All of the grading virtues matter when determining the value of these rare pearls however the deeper golden colors are more desirable and highly sought after.
