PRODUCTION PROCESS                   

HATCHERY                                                         Parent oysters are carefully selected with the right qualities to breed the perfect golden color pearls

GRAFTING
A highly skilled master grafter insert a shell nucleus and a tissue graft (a small piece of mantle tissue) in the gonad, the reproductive organ of the  Pinctada Maxima oysters.

POST OPERATION
After grafting, the oysters are placed in special boxes at 7-meter depth in order to minimize the oyster stress and limit the percentage of nucleus rejection for period of 3 months.

CULTIVATION PERIOD                                 The oysters will stay in the deep water for period of 4 to 5 years and regularly cleaned to ensure the health of the oysters. During that period, a thick layer of nacre will coat around the inserted nuclei.

HARVEST                                                             After 4 to 5 years of tender care, a beautiful gem is born. During this magical moment, a lustrous golden pearl is extracted out from the oyster.
