Pearls are the only Gem created by a living organism! There are many types of pearls, though we recommend the Australian South Sea Pearl, which is produced in the waters around Broome, Western Australia.
Australian South Sea Pearls are produced in an oyster, which is fished in the ocean, and taken to pearls farms located close to the shoreline. The oyster is then seeded (by a highly skilled technician) with a special round bead (cut from a Mississippi clam shell) and put back into nets at the pearl farms. It then takes 2 years to cultivate one of these beautiful gems in these pristine waters (with regular maintenance on the shells) and then during another operation, a pearl is born.
Mandurah Cruises is excited about its new “Australian Collection” of jewellery from Australian Fine Jewellery. Next time you’re in Mandurah please drop in and have a look at these beautiful pieces of jewellery.
