Of all the pearls across the globe, there is one that is rare and revered. In pristine waters where the temperature is gentle and the atmosphere nurturing, there is a pearl with a strange perfection which bears the fingerprint of forever, the South Sea pearl.

The South Sea pearl is a labour of love, spending two silent years within the host oyster – the Pinctada maxima (commonly known as the silver or gold lip) or the Pinctada margaritifera (commonly known as the black lip). The breathtaking gift that is finally delivered into our world is well worth the wait.

Each pearl is judged and valued on the AUTORE Five S’s™: Shine, Surface, Shade, Shape and Size.
