Pearl Workshop at the Sea
Discover your pearl, create your accessory
The Hong Kong pearl shucking experience first started in Cheung Chau, Hong Kong, over 2 decades ago. Now, it becomes a 3-hour edu-experience at the sea, promising the participants with a renewed understanding of pearls and their relationship with the ocean.
Rebuild "Pearl of the Orient"

The market demand for pearls has increased a lot, and coupled with the decline in global supply of seawater pearls, prices have also increased a lot. Fortunately, we have harvested sufficient pearls that would hopefully support the Hong Kong pearl jewelers and accessory creators.
The pearls harvested in Hong Kong have been entrusted to reputable merchants for sales. If you are interested in using Hong Kong pearls to develop your jewelry brand or pearl jewelry series, remember to discuss with us!
