Western Australia is famous for producing the world’s largest and finest pearls.
This 60-minute experience gives an exclusive insight into the mysterious world of pearling. You will learn exactly how pearls are grown through modern day practices and be provided with a thrilling recount of the rich history surrounding pearling in Broome, Western Australia.
The star of the show is the Pinctada maxima oyster, known as the largest pearl producing oyster in the world. You will get to work with this remarkable creature throughout the master class and witness the birth of a pearl, extracted as the oyster is opened up for the first time right in front of you.
Willie Creek Pearls have been delivering award-winning tourism experiences for over 30 years. We are excited to share the fascinating and intricate process of growing a valuable pearl that could range anywhere between $500 and $5,000 (& beyond)! This experience will also showcase examples of rare pearl types along with breath-taking pieces of Australian pearl jewellery.
