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.

Time flies incredibly fast! It seems like it was just yesterday when we had our Grand Opening party and welcomed our first customers. Now, 3 years later, we look back proudly with gratitude and joy!
Pearl lovers and friends, join us on Saturday, 08.06.19 at Pullman Danang Beach Resort Lobby for a night of free-flowing drinks, snacks and goodies. Yes, it’s our birthday, but we’ll be spoiling you with gifts and treats instead!
Saltwater vs Freshwater Pearls: What’s The Difference?
What Are Freshwater Pearls?
These are harvested from freshwater mussels, which can each produce up to 30 pearls. This high productivity opposed to saltwater mussels (only one pearl at a time) makes the freshwater pearls more affordable, as they are not so rare and are easier to cultivate.
