Aided by mother nature Juno Bay Pearls were the culmination of a 15 year long research and development Adventure by Pearl Farmers Michael and Nancy Crimp of Indian Pacific Pearls P/L.
Juno Bay, Orpheus Island was selected by the company as a pearl farming site after 8 years of research and trials. Juno Bay was recognised as a site that had the potential to produce world class pearls of unsurpassed colour and lustre.
A further 7 years were spent conducting commercial scale trials to unlock the secrets within the environment and the oysters so that their treasures could be realised.
Orpheus Island surpassed even the most optimistic expectations of everyone. The first pearls produced were lauded by internationally recognised Pearl Academics, Professionals, Jewellery Designers and First Tier Jewellery Retailers when first introduced to these stunning creations in 2002.
In late 2006 the pearl farm ceased operation leaving less than 2,000 pearls for the national and international market.
Juno Bay Pearls truly are the rarest and most precious gems in the world.
The Argyle Diamond mine produced about 35,000 carats of pink diamonds per year and is due to close in 2020.
