Pearl Family Business

Hello everyone, today i just wanted to share one of my favorite picture taken by my dad #stephanesayeb in my other dad's #francktehaamatai #pearl #farm in #fakarava. That's what I call #familybusiness  !!!

This picture represents all the #buoys used to hang the #oysters while our famous #Tahitian #black #pearls are formed. 18 to 24 months depending on their constitution is the time the pinctada margaritifera variety cumingii will stay underwater to produce a pearl with a minimum of 0.8mm #nacre #layer #thickness which is a requirement of the #French #Polynesia government for our pearls to be exported out of the country.

Are pearls forever? Yes, they are if you follow some basic rules you can keep their luster last for generations.
