    South Sea pearls are the largest cultured-pearl variety, sometimes reaching over 20 millimeters in diameter. The Pinctada maxima oyster can take up to five years to produce a single South Sea pearl, whereas more common freshwater oysters can take as little as three months and create dozens of pearls. This long cultivation process makes South Sea pearls rarer - and more expensive. A single South Sea pearl can cost $1,500, and a necklace can reach over $200,000. So, how are these pearls grown? And what makes them so expensive?

My mom found a purple pearl in an oyster she was eating and they valued it at like $750

This is really interesting to me. I work with pearls as a designer but there is a lot that I learned in this video. For example, I didn't realize that pearls could be reshaped and shined like that. And I didn't realize that the nucleus was as big as it is. I wonder if I could learn to shape and buff some of my pearls that have flaws.

As an Indonesian, I am happy to see that local people in Lombok can make the most of their natural wealth. With this video, I hope the Ministry of Home Affairs can open their eyes about state assets in Lombok, apart from the Mandalika GP circuit, to be developed with assistance in the form of education or investment.

I actually prefer wonkier pearls myself. There's something appealing about them to me. Like, a reminder that this is a natural object, a real one of a kind.

As a native Indonesian, the translation is quite off. The farmer said that they cleaned the oyster of moss, dirt, bacteria, and worms. They didn't talk about snails or insects.

I always find it fascinating how they do ocean farming like this. The oysters look natural, as if they live in the sea when they are in the lab yet they aren’t; the oysters have algae and other microbes growing on them the same as if they were growing in the ocean. So interesting

When you consider it took 9 years to collect the pearls for that one necklace, 36,000 is basically stealing.

Very informative piece. I never thought the irritants/nuclei were that size or perfectly shaped. Beautiful Indonesian scenery. I wonder how the price would change when it is a naturally occurring pearl. What happens to oysters after the pearl is harvested? Is climate change and warmer waters affecting the quality and quantity of cultured pearls?

tbh i prefer the irregular shaped ones, they look more unique than the perfectly round ones which are copied too much.

I worked in a fine jewelry store for a while and sold an incredibly beautiful and expensive Tahitian black pearl ring that was several thousand dollars.

That necklace has about 45 pearls and only cost $36k which means each pearl is less than $800. That’s still a lot for each. I wonder how much the guy sells his to the lady for it. The pearls are expensive because of its scarcity, increasing supply will bring down its cost

Now I know why they are so expensive. I love pearls but I found the baroque ones the most beautiful and those pinky or peachy colored ones to be more eye-catching and appealing.

They probably have a strict import license to stop this type of farming from affecting the environment. I could be wrong but monoculture farming is usually not a good thing.
