See How Pearls are CULTIVATED

There are two farming operations that are available to see…both are South of Duong Dong along the coastal highway on the way to An Thoi.

It was kind of cool to see how pearls are “cultivated” in a process that’s totally “man made”. I had not ever seen this process happen before and so I thought it was kind of a cool thing to do. It’s possible to watch…there are many workstations set up in a fairly large room where people are busy implanting a particular type of pearl oyster with the materials needed for the growth of the pearl. You see people loading the mesh panels and preparing them for deposit into the ocean where they are suspended by rope

In case you don’t know…the process is to implant a pearl oyster with a small piece of “Mississippi Pig Toe Mussel”. A graft of tissue from a donor oyster is attached to the implant shell and inserted via a surgical cut into the host oyster shell..

The pearl oyster shells are then placed in a meshed panel and suspended in the ocean where they will grow for upwards of two years.

There is a large display area where you can purchase pearls set into different settings, necklaces, rings.
