The museum offers a comprehensive exploration of the historical figures who adorned themselves with pearls, delving into the intricacies of pearl farming, and providing insights into choosing the perfect pearl. From the secrets of their cultivation to their rich history, the museum educates and inspires pearl enthusiasts and newcomers alike. A highlight of the collection is the largest round Tahitian cultured pearl in existence: a 26mm round Tahitian Silver (grey) of AAA quality, weighing 8.7 grams.
