Took my wife here on our honeymoon, we dove for her Pearl and she got a very beautiful blue/green pearl valued around $300 @ 10.7mm she turned into a necklace. She loves it and it has a great story behind it now.

Diving for my own pearls was wonderful. The Farm taught me how pearls are formed before going out in the boat and diving for my own. I had mine made into earrings. They are beautiful and have a story to go with them.
