Pearl Grading System Set for Fiji Pearl Farmers


FIJI's three pearl exporters have agreed on a system to ensure the pearls being exported are of a high quality.

Valili Pearls of Wailevu, J. Hunter Pearls of Savusavu and Civa Fiji Pearls Ltd of Taveuni have agreed on high quality grading system for pearls destined to the export market, a statement said.

"This groundbreaking agreement is a world first in pearl farming. The agreement covers many areas such as environmentally friendly farm practices, rural community development, staff training and empowering, quality control systems, research data sharing, technology exchange, and a very high quality pearl production system control for export," the statement said.

"This system will ensure that only high quality pearls will be exported from these three farms. It will also help maintain and increase the actual solid reputation of the Fijian pearls in international markets.

"As pearl export production is ramping up again in Fiji after the devastating effect on the industry of cyclone Tomas of 2010, it is paramount that Fiji re-enters the international market with a very high quality product to keep the prices at sustainable levels for these three farms.
