Tahitian Pearl Farms

Forget diamonds, black pearls are a Tahitian gal’s best friend. They come in silvery white to black and every colour in between, so it’s easy to get seduced by these sea gems’ soothing hues. Don’t miss visiting a farm (our favourite spots are on Taha'a), where you’ll see how the oysters are raised and harvested, and maybe even get to see a technician performing the culturing operation (called a ‘graft’). Afterwards, you’ll get to drool over lustrous jewellery and hopefully get a great deal on a special souvenir.
