Overview

Black Pearl producer since 1987, no middle man just good prices. Free pick-ups from any hotel ( no obligations ) Our designs are simple but elegant at our shop, and our pearls come directly from our pearl farm at Manihi. Small family business, with great service and simply the best product out there for the best prices available. see us fist, and we both win.
