The Secret Life of Pearls – Set your DVRs!

Tonight on NatGeo at 10 pm, The Secret Life of Pearls will air!

You can find details here.

I’ve personally had the honor of visiting the Paspaley pearling operation deep in the outback of Australia and I treasure the experience. While it was many years ago, it’s one I will always remember.

If you would like to see where some of the world’s rarest pearls are grown and where white South Sea pearls originate from and how they are farmed, you won’t want to miss this!

  1. Pearls are found in the wild only. Thousands of oysters needed to be opened to find just a few pearls, and for centuries, the world’s pearl oysters and mussels were fished in large quantities. This led to the over-exploitation of oyster and mussel stocks. Pearls are looking so beautiful and gorgeous. I love pearl jewelry from Timeless Pearl where I find real pearl sets and know more about pearl farming.
