Golden South Sea pearls are among the largest, most valuable pearls produced today.
These opulent golden pearls are produced by the golden-lipped oyster. Although their color is stunning, as if made from spun gold, the color is completely natural. The color palette ranges from light champagne to a very rare, deep gold.
Much like white South Sea pearls, golden south sea pearls are typically larger than other saltwater pearl varieties. Their host shell is the largest pearl-producing oyster, and is able to grow a very large pearl.
The value of a golden South Sea pearl is heavily dependent upon the color; the deeper the golden color, the more valuable the pearl. The overall value of these pearls is higher than akoya or Tahitian, and very comparable to white South Sea pearls. The deepest golden color, often referred to as 24 karat, is considered the most valuable color of all South Sea pearls.
Of all the cultured pearl varieties on the market today, South Sea pearls are the undisputed leaders in value. Their large size, combined with the relative scarcity, make them among the most desired as well.
