One of our first stops, it was very educational. the young lady was extremely knowledgeable in explaining the process of farming pearls followed by a short video. They have hands on interaction with the local sea life and a showroom for beautiful black pearl jewelry.

An educational trip to the Black Pearl Farm can be very enlightening. A visit here showcases the process and business of pearl farming. One can also see the clam farm where beautiful clams are kept and grown. For those wanting to sample some of the seas finest gems, a jewelry store with the most exquisite products can be tantalizing to... More

Disappointed that they do not take you to their actual farm where the pearls are produced. Not sure why they charge for just a short video.

People already complained about high prices in this shop. There have a story behind these prices: black pearls from Seychelles that you can buy only from them. Even then it is not clear why these pearls are more expensive than those from Tahiti which are sold in other stores in Seychelles. We bought a set anyway: ear rings and a... More

Don't bother paying the fee to watch the video - waste of time and money! Also, the jewellery that they had for sale was pretty pricey for what it was.

We decided to visit this place and arrived at around 11:30 in the morning. The sign said it was open but as we drove down it became apparant that it was not. No signs saying why so if you are going I would ring and not drive up to the place just to find it is closed.

Really wanted to visit this and arrived at 12.55. Sign said open 10am-4pm, 2 girls were on the porch eating takeaway food from polystyrene containers and surfing on their phones."you are open?" we asked. "Come back in an hour, we are having lunch" one said and went back to her phone. Needless to say, we did not bother.

Good Place to go and buy a black pearl as an investment. Dont expect to get any real bargains though. Its pricey but still cheaper than other places around the world i guess.

Good place to visit if you are interested in seeing how pearls are farmed. Good selection of pearls to see at varying stages of growth. Always baby turtles to see too!
