Golden South Sea Cultured Pearls- Pinctada maxima (Golden-lipped)

White South Sea Pearls can be stark white in color or silver with varying ranges of tones. The Pinctada Maxima, or white lipped oyster is primarily grown in Western Australia. The silvery white rim of this oyster is where the White South Sea pearls get their beautiful color from.

Golden South Sea Pearls are similar to the white South Sea pearls in their size, lustre, and growing range. The main difference is their color. Golden South Sea pearls range from a soft creamy yellow to a very intense deep golden color. The golden-lipped oyster is mainly grown in the waters of Australia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. It is from the rim of this oyster that the pearls attain their beautiful golden color. 

White South Sea Pearl- Pinctada Maxima (White Lipped)

South Sea Pearls are among the largest, rarest, and most valuable of the cultivated pearls. They range in size from 9mm to 22mm. They come in two varieties, the White South Sea and the Golden South Sea, both of which are cultivated by the Pinctada Maxima oyster. The Pinctada Maxima is the largest type of saltwater oyster in the world and can grow as large as a dinner plate in size. South Sea Pearls have a unique satiny lustre, that comes from the fast growing nacre of the warm South Seas.
