Mergui, Myanmar

The emerald green shallows that surround Myanmars Mergui islands are legendary for producing Gold South Sea pearls, grown by the "Gold Lipped" Pinctada Maxima oyster.

This variant of the Pinctada Maxima oyster takes over two years to grow pearls that are naturally gold, a feat that no other oyster can naturally accomplish making them inherently rare and highly sought after. 

Oceana's Gold South Sea pearls are collected from an exclusive sourcing relationship with a pearl farming venture located on the remote island of Shwe Kyun (Gold Island) , in southern Myanmar.
