The presentation of the guided tour of the pearl farm begins with a theoretical part where the entire breeding process is detailed, then by a passage in the production workshops (preparation, grafting, harvest). The detailed classification of pearls is then explained inside the shop in order to show you the possible results between the different pearls and the characteristics of their quality (round, semi-baroque, circled, keshi ...).
We offer guided tours of the pearl farm and its process to obtain Tahitian cultured pearls, so you can come by yourself and participate when it happens.
