Our Pearl Farm
At Archipelagopearls we produce our South Sea Pearls on our own farm in the pristine tropical waters of the Andaman Sea. We use traditional methods of oyster husbandry, professional oyster technicians and careful site selection in order to produce the finest South Sea Pearls. Our knowledge gained working as technical advisers to the pearl industry for over 25 years, has been fully applied to our farm operation.
Producing fine pearls is a long and dedicated journey. It takes around 4 years (2 years to grow the oyster to an appropriate size and a further 2 years to grow the pearl). It is only through constant dedication by all our staff that we can achieve exceptional results.
Pearl farming offers a great many benefits to local communities, as well as the environment. It is a fully sustainable activity, and each farm essentially acts as a large protected reserve for all forms of sea life, as access to other activities (such as commercial fishing) is strictly forbidden.
