Black Pearl Shopping

Fakarava Atoll, French Polynesia

The island group Fakarava, part of the Tuamotu Archipelago, is one of the main producers of the cultured black pearls the South Seas are famed for. It’s always wise to buy from the source, and there are a number of pearl retailers on Fakarava. Since pearls vary greatly in color, shape, and size, it’s best to look around. Check out Hinano Pearls, Dream Pearls, and the shop at the Pearl Havaiki Lodge.
