South Sea Pearl Store was established after our founders spent several years living in Jakarta as Australian expatriates between 2003 to 2009. While in Jakarta they were heavily involved in the wholesale jewellery trade and regularly attended international Pearl auctions being held in various locations around Asia. Indonesia is the worlds main producer of South Sea Pearls and during the time our founders spent in Jakarta acquaintances were made with several leading South Sea Pearl cultivators in the region.
After undertaking extensive travel across the Indonesian archipelago, to investigate sources of South Sea Pearls, several cultivators were successfully located where the Pearls are very high quality, free of artificial treatments and are cultivated in pristine ocean water conditions. Supply agreements were negotiated with these producers confirming a guaranteed continuous supply of some of the highest quality Pearls being produced.
In the later part of 2009 the founders returned to Australia and established a specialized wholesale loose pearl distribution office located in Perth. South Sea Pearl Store continues to promote its Australian based business and have undertaken several successful advertising campaigns. We pride ourselves on customer service and have many regular satisfied customers from all over Australia and around the world.
