This year, we proudly celebrate 80 years of Australian pearling heritage, paying homage to our origins with a short film and fashion shoot created in The Kimberley - a location at the heart of Paspaley.
Paspaley’s pearl farms stretch more than 2500 kilometres across the pristine waters off Australia’s north-west coast. We remain committed to sustaining the waters off Northern Australia. With a proven environmentally benign footprint, we have long understood that a pearls beauty and quality is intrinsically influenced by the waters in which it grows.
