Where do Golden South Sea pearls come from?

South Sea pearls are found in a large-breed oyster called Pinctada Maxima. These oysters live in the waters between Australia and China and are rarely found anywhere else.

The golden variety is especially rare and, along with the chances of finding the perfect shaped and sized pearl, is the primary reason they are high-end jewels.

Countries cultivating these pearls include Myanmar, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and China.

  • Earrings can be worn alone as statement pieces, or dressed up with matching rings and necklaces for formal settings.
  • Golden South Sea pearls are ideal bridal jewelry at weddings where the secondary color/ bridesmaid color will be beige, yellow, or gold.
