Since graduating with a degree (Bachelor of Applied Science : Aquaculture, University of Tasmania, Australia) in 1994, I have worked in pearl farming as a specialist in the cultivation of Pinctada maxima (silver-lipped / gold-lipped pearl oyster) in Australia and S.E.Asia.

With over 15 years experience as Farm Manager on large commercial pearl farms, I have gained considerable knowledge in the endless quest to produce the perfect South Sea Pearl.

At Archipelagopearls it is our sincere aim to supply you with the highest quality South Sea Pearls available by using the best production techniques, coupled with sound environmental practices.
