You’ll also learn the five virtues of pearl grading and the philosophy behind the Paspaley jewellery design.
The Paspaley Legacy
Regarded as the most valuable pearls in the world, Paspaley has a history spanning 80 years. The family-owned business has covered three generations and is considered the pioneer of the Australian South Sea pearling industry. Paspaley is committed to sustaining the pristine waters of Northern Australia and has a team of divers who search wild pearl beds to collect the oysters by hand. This environmentally friendly fishing technique ensures there is no damage to the ocean floor. The pearls are then nurtured on a network of farms spanning 2500km. The company’s devotion to exquisitely beautiful natural pearls is truly a sight to behold.
