Interested in learning about pearls? This daily experience provides a compelling insight into the mysterious world of Pearling from the perspective of a working Australian Pearl Farm. Your guide will share fascinating information on modern day pearl farming and historical pearling practices. Watch and be amazed as an oyster is opened and the pearl inside is revealed right before your very eyes!
What You'll Get
On this 30-minute discovery session you will learn of the journey an Australian pearl takes and the risks involved to produce a gem worthy of jewellery. Before beginning your harvest, make yourself known to one of our friendly staff who will direct you into the harvest room where you will perch up overlooking the beautiful Swan River.
Your guide will firstly fill you in on the background of Willie Creek Pearls and how the pearling industry is structured here in Western Australia. Next, enjoy an interactive presentation detailing the intricacies of pearl farming off the coast of Broome. This includes examples of specialist equipment used on the pearl farm. You will be amazed at the process each oyster goes through in hope of producing a stunning pearl for jewellery!
Watch and hold your breath as the oyster is opened to reveal the pearl that lies inside. Due to the quality being left in Mother Nature’s hands, the pearl revealed on the day could be valued anywhere between $500 and $5,000 (or beyond!). Seeing a beautiful pearl harvested from its oyster is a breathtaking moment you will never forget.
A pearl’s value relies on the interpretation of 5 key virtues. These virtues will be explained, and you can have a go at valuing some pearls yourself!
Marvel at stunning pieces of pearl jewellery and see different types of pearls from all over the world. This is a unique Western Australian experience not to be missed.
