Overview

Selling the pearls we produce on our farm, providing one of the largest stock of pearls in various shapes, round, baroque, and sizes, from little ones to big pearls. Several big pearls, rare stock. Jewels mounted on the farm. The quality of our pearls is of highest importance to us, and much-sought. We offer our guests a free visit of the farm, to get the public into a deep knowledge of the pearl culture, of our work process, and of the quality criterion that apply to a pearl. Give us a phone call to plan your visit, in the morning or the day before, so we can give you our best.

Hi, many thanks for you comment. We are happy that you were able to see the grafter harvesting our production. It is always a surprise when we discover the pearls that we grafted 18 months before. Best regards Monique
