This pearl comes from the Chatham Islands off the coast. The nutrients and the cold temperatures of the water here make the colours of the "paua" as they are locally known particularly and intense and gorgeous. There is a very limited quota of wild Paua harvested by divers every year and only very very rarely do they produce a pearl at all and one this size and this shape would have taken over 20 years to grow. I starting collecting abalone pearls over 15 years ago and became later a goldsmith after exporting cultured and natural abalone pearls to Japan, Germany, Italy and Austria. This one has been in my collection for years and only now am I willing to part with this treasure.
