Processing Technique

Raw Pearls

In order to secure better bargains for pearl purchases, our purchasing staff maintain regular contacts with pearl farmers and suppliers in China, Japan, Australia, French Polynesia and Hong Kong. The management and the purchasing staff meet regularly to estimate the market demand of pearls. In addition to purchasing pearls from farmers and suppliers, we also purchase pearls at international pearl auctions held all over the world.

Cleaning & Sorting

Pearls are firstly sorted according to their sizes, shapes, and other qualities by trained workers.

Drilling

After sorting, pearls are distributed to the staff for drilling the holes. The holes must be centered and positioned very precisely to hide any flaws or blemishes.

Bleaching

Pearls are then put for bleaching. The time of the bleaching process varies from a few hours to a few months, depending on the techniques used, the conditions of the pearls and the required results.

Polishing

Pearls are then polishing for better luster.

Sorting

Polished pearls are sorted according to their size, shape, color and luster into strands.

Stringing

Pearls are strung into strands of an average length of 16 inches.

Grading

Strands of processed pearls are graded and priced by experienced staff according to their size, shape, color, luster, surface and quality.
