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.

I think this is a great idea. When we happened upon The Farm one day we weren't intending to buy a pearl but the diving experience sold me. The process was explained clearly to us by Melissa who spoke perfect English and was very helpful....More
