“Very overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

I have quite a bit of black pearl jewelry from French Polynesia and was excited to see the "gold pearls" of the Seychelles that I saw advertised on Praslin. The shop was small with not much of a selection, especially not many gold pearls. Most were cultured black pearls that they culture right there by the shop. The pearl jewelry was more expensive than most I have seen in US high end jewelry shops but not nearly as nice and the loose pearls were also very overpriced.

“Almost a waste of time”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

This is located opposite Praslin airport. Basically its a small property where they are harvesting pearls. To be honest, my wife and I did not take the full tour but we could tell that it was probably not worth the while.

Entry was only 50 S Rupees.

“Not a lot to see.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

Two tanks of Giant clams and a short explanation on pearl production plus a jewelry showroom.
OK if you are passing but don't make a special journey.
