Tahitian pearls are among the most beautiful and most desired in the world and the Tahiti Pearl Market is a family business that cultivates, sets into jewelry, and sells magnificent locally harvested pearls. Their adventure started on the atoll of Takaroa and has grown into a much larger operation that now cultures pearl oysters on five atolls in the Tuamotu Archipelago. Different locations produce a wide range of colors, sizes, and quality. This Tahiti traditional trade gives employment to a large number of native people – just one of these farms employs 40 people on the small atoll of Ahe. They include divers who collect the pearl oysters from 20 feet under water. Tahiti Pearl Market offers their customers the unique opportunity to select the pearl of their choice among thousands of pearls and have them mounted on the setting they wish.
