Gauguin's Pearl is the unique pearl farm on the Rangiroa atoll, in French Polynesia. Since it opened in 1992, it has provided local, ethical, traditional and ecological knowledge to all its customers. A very well-documented guided tour is provided as well, where you can discover the whole process from the birth of a Tahitian pearl to the creation of a jewel. In our shop, you will find handmade creations, unique Tahitian pearl jewells, and a large choice of colors and shapes : necklaces, earrings, pendants, bracelets and rings.

The guided tour of the farm is very informative and you will learn the whole process of pearls culture. Veronica is friendly and very knowledgeable. The shop is also well run with a nice variety of pearls to buy for all budgets.
