The tropical waters of the South Pacific and Indian Oceans are perfect for culturing these large-sized pearls. The warmer temperatures increase the metabolism of the p. maxima oyster, and encourages a increased rate of crystalline nacre deposition.
Combined with the longer-than-average growth times for each pearl, this results in pearls with very thick nacre and beautiful luster and color.
Golden South Sea pearls are mostly farmed in the Philippines. Indonesia cultures a mix of White and pale to light Golden South Sea pearls, and again the majority of the farms are smaller, family owned businesses. The largest operation for Indonesia is Atlas Pearl Company, near Kupang.
The largest and most famous Golden South Sea pearl farming operation belongs to Jewelmer, located on Flower Island in the Philippine Islands.
