Harvesting Pearls Responsibly

 

            

We are extremely thrilled to have found the absolutely gorgeous Kamoka Pearls!                                                              

These luscious pearls come directly from the lagoon at the Kamoka Pearl Farm on the atoll of Ahe in the Tuamotu Archipelago. A family owned farm, where pearls are harvested in the most sustainable methods of aquaculture.

When you love pearls you also must know about them!

                                                       The Inspiration

 

When you are a bit of a nomad, there is not much space in your luggage to carry with you important memories; all of a sudden your heart and mind start being your biggest suitcases to carry those unforgettable treasures that have marked your childhood and the younger years of your existence.

 Here, a few items found in a small trunk that had crossed the oceans a few times, I still carry what is materially left of some of my fondest memories of my early years.

Antonia 1

Antonia was her name … the sweetest, most prudent, clever, dedicated and caring grandmother that you could ever have. High heels, immaculate pencil skirts and silk blouses, and always, always a strand of pearls and studs that were the continuation of her smile.

I proudly say that it was there, by her side, where my love for pearls started. She patiently allowed me to take them all out off their individual silk bags to try them on; and to spend magical hours of my childhood looking at the luster and natural colours of the strands. It was with her where I learned that the ocean has many presents for us humans. The spirit of the ocean reflected on the luster of a single beautiful pearl, magical!
