A trip to Australia reveals the wonder of giant South Sea pearls.
We took the long trip to Australia to study the famous white lipped oysters that produced magnificent pearls that are often 11-14mm--about 8 times the size of a standard cultured pearl. Not only did these oysters produce our rare South Sea pearl but they also produced tremendous amounts of mother of pearl or nacre. Nacre is the lustrous iridescent substance which is secreted by the oyster to form the shiny inside of their shells. When nacre secretions are deposited around the seed they build up to form a full-sized pearl. Our bioscientists went to work to see if we could help nature along a little. By extracting a seed pearl from young fresh oyster shells and speeding up the process by which the nacre coats the seed pearl, we are able to produce the breathtaking Australian Pacific Necklace.
You can now wear a stunning 18" Australian Pacific necklace crafted from the organic nacre of the giant Pinctada maxima for under $300. Naturally, this necklace is strikingly beautiful, but so much more affordable. But most importantly, we'll also give you $300 in Stauer Gift Coupons ($25 to use every month, for 12 months, with no minimum purchase required).
