The fascinating moment of the pearl harvest

This year’s harvest has begun! We start when the best conditions are met to take the oysters out of the water. This is the perfect time to visit the farm, you will be able to discover and share the excitement of this moment with us.

 

We are harvesting pearls from oysters that were grafted a year and a half ago. The process of creating a pearl is very long and many factors can take part and change the size, shape, color and quality of the pearl. For every oyster, it's a surprise to discover which pearl we are going to get.

 

This year, the first pearls that we have collected are small and very colorful, because they are pearls of first graft! These are oysters that have been grafted only once and they will eventually be able to be grafted again and give more big pearls.
