Visit Pearl Farm Island near Phuket

To the west of Phuket you will find a little paradise island called Maphrao Yai where pearls have been cultivated for centuries. After the magical process is completed, the most luxurious and expensive pearls leave the farm to be taken to all corners of the world. Phuket is surely the birthplace of pearl cultivation, and Mother Nature takes good care of her little pearls all the year round. The western shores of the pearl farm island are washed by two gentle currents, which make conditions ideal for pearl cultivation. Water temperatures never drop lower than 30C.

However, a favourable environment is not sufficient for proper pearl cultivation. It is with great patience and expertise that farmers extract ripe pearls from shells without breaking them.

Cultured pearls are the natural responses of thousands of shells to tissue implants, grown in seawater for up to five years. Both weather conditions and water temperatures near Phuket are ideal for pearl farming, as the warm currents provide continuous plankton flow for the pearl shells.

Retail store

You have got to visit the Pearl farm store as you return from the farm. The store offers a wide variety of pearls grown in Phuket and the paradise islands in its vicinity. The store offers attractive pricing for both retailers and wholesale customers.

Take your time and let your eyes feast upon the selection of individual pearls, pearl necklaces, earrings, brooches and rings – all designs, shapes and colours of the rainbow are always in stock, and their excellent product quality is confirmed by certificates.

During your tour to the pearl farm, do not forget to visit its exhibition hall, where you will see the best cultured pearls and listen to the story of the farm’s development and cultivation process. Your guide will let you in on the secrets of pearl farming, and teach you to distinguish natural pearls from their imitations. The guide will brief you on proper storing conditions for pearls and warn you against keeping your favourite pearl necklace next to other gems, perfumes or make-up.

We promise you will not leave the farm without a little or a big buy, and a greater appreciation for Mother Nature’s most precious ornament.

Free transfer for all customers.
