WHEN PATIENCE GIVES BIRTH TO LUXURY

It takes about 2 years to grow an oyster that is able to give birth to a pearl and another 1,5 years at least for the pearl to form in its body. 3,5 years is the time to get a pearl of the smallest size, it may take up to 7 years to produce a bigger pearl. Only 3 % of the cultured oysters will produce a perfectly round pearl so valued in jewelry production. Patience and diligence must be the main qualities of a pearl farmer.
