5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Amorn Phuket Pearl Farm

Revered for their natural beauty, pearls are the only gems created by living creatures, making them unique among precious stones. Phuket in Thailand, is famous for its pearls due to the region’s rich maritime culture and ideal conditions for pearl farming. The warm, clear waters provide an optimal environment for oysters to thrive, making it a prime location for cultivating high-quality pearls. Phuket’s pearl industry is a heavy contributor to the economy, drawing tourists eager to purchase authentic pearl jewelry and learn about the traditional methods of pearl cultivation.

If you are curious to visit a farm and learn how pearls are produced, Amorn Phuket Pearl’s farm in Thailand is the place to be. Boasting a rich heritage dating back to 1967, we are the first award-winning pearl farm in Thailand. For over five decades, we have cultivated a deep passion for pearls, transforming them into exquisite works of art. 

Let’s explore five reasons why you should visit Amorn Phuket Pearl for an informative and fun guided tour. 

1. Pearl Cultivation

Your tour starts with a traditional long-tail boat ride to our floating pearl farm. Led by our English-speaking, friendly, and knowledgeable staff, you will witness our team tending to the oyster beds and learn how our experts harvest and nurture them. 

Our floating pearl farms are a fascinating and integral part of the local aquaculture. You will see a series of rafts and floating platforms anchored in the protected bays and estuaries around the island. The oysters, housed in nets suspended from these rafts, benefit from the nutrient-rich waters, which promote their growth and enhance the quality of the pearls they produce. 

You will also learn about our farm’s sustainable practices and gain a deeper appreciation for the natural wonder of pearls. This hands-on experience offers insight into the intricate art of pearl farming and also highlights the sustainable practices that balance local economic needs with environmental conservation.

2. Jewelry Factory

Once the pearls reach maturity and are carefully harvested, their journey continues at our state-of-the-art processing facility. Here, our skilled artisans, with years of experience and a keen eye for detail, meticulously clean each pearl. This involves gentle yet thorough cleaning methods to remove any residual sea life or impurities without compromising the pearl’s delicate surface.

After cleaning, the pearls are sorted and graded with precision. This multi-step process considers several key factors:

  • Size: Pearls are measured and categorized based on size. This ensures consistent sizing within a piece of jewelry or when selecting pearls for matching sets.
  • Luster: The brilliance and depth of a pearl’s reflection, known as luster, is a crucial factor. Artisans expertly assess the luster, categorizing pearls from the highly coveted mirror-like sheen to those with a softer, more subtle glow.
  • Color: Pearls come in a surprising range of natural hues, from classic white and cream to captivating shades of pink, lavender, and even black. Each pearl’s unique color is carefully evaluated and classified.
  • Shape: While perfectly round pearls are highly prized, other shapes like near-round, oval, and baroque are also stunning. The artisans assess the shape of each pearl, considering its symmetry and how it will complement other pearls in a setting.

You will learn how our artisans ensure that each pearl finds its perfect match, creating pieces that showcase the natural beauty and brilliance of these underwater treasures.
