About Tahitian PearlIt is always exciting to open up an oyster since you never know what shape the pearl has formed into until the moment you crack open the shell. Whether in the shape of a drop, button or baroque, we see the uniqueness of each pearl and strive to embrace each one in its natural form. Here at Tahitian Pearl Association Hong Kong, we endeavor to bring awareness and promote the beauty of asymmetrical Tahitian pearls.
