The deepest golden color, often referred to as 24 karat, is considered the most valuable color of all South Sea pearls.
⭐There are three main regions where South sea gold pearls are cultivated: Philippines, Indonesia and Myanmar.
South Sea: Grown mainly in Indonesia, Australia, and the Philippines, South Sea pearls are usually white or gold in color and known for their very large size and attractive luster. These pearls are fairly rare, so you’ll pay more for a necklace made with them. South Sea pearls range in size from 9mm to 18mm.
⭐The value of a Golden South Sea pearl is heavily dependent upon the color; the deeper the golden color, the more valuable the pearl.
⭐On the market, there are often imitations of gold pearls: for example, freshwater pearls are tinted or plastic balls are covered with a gold color... it has nothing to do with real South sea pearls.
⭐Pearl customization is available. Any question or request on our pearls quality, size, setting, metal type, please feel free to contact us, we are always here to help.
