Paspaley – quest for world’s rarest and most valuable pearls
January 21, 2017
As pearling pioneers, Paspaley has dedicated over 80 years to the perfect pearl.
Behind the beauty of a Paspaley Australian South Sea pearl is an adventure that began in 1935 when Nicholas Paspaley, MBE, first collected mother-of-pearl shell in Australia’s northern waters. The family business he founded has evolved to become the world’s leading South Sea pearling company.
Today, Paspaley nurtures its pearls on a remote network of farms stretching more than 2,500 km across the north-west coast of Australia. With its sophisticated fleet of purpose built pearling ships, Paspaley is one of the few companies to still dive for wild pearl oysters. Paspaley’s innovative techniques have been widely acknowledged as world’s best practice, positioning the name at the forefront of the pearling industry.
Paspaley designers create Signature Collections and bespoke pieces that are wearable, versatile and beautiful – the gem of substance for the modern woman.
Paspaley inspires women all over the world with not only their pearls, which have an exceptional colour and lustre, but also contemporary designs and innovative craftsmanship. The versatility of the designs allows women to personalise their look for any occasion.
