As early as 4000 years ago, Chinese people discovered a kind of delicate gem with soft brilliance when searching ocean for food. This is pearl. Since then, countless pearl jewelry and artwork have been created by talented Chinese people. Hence, pearl has been one of the important parts of Chinese culture.
The first book note of pearl is four thousand years ago in China. And people in China have been collecting, growing, and harvesting pearls for over two thousand years - we have the oldest pearl production tradition anywhere in the world. China was also the first country to develop cultured pearls, around 1082 A.D.
Chinese pearls are the highest quality
In China - especially in the southern region where our pearls are from - breeding conditions for pearls are ideal.
Our country is huge, with diverse waterways that provide many different environments for oysters. We have vast watersheds that provide huge breeding areas for oysters, and millions of tons of natural food. In the South, our waters are just the right temperature and salinity to encourage oysters to grow. In addition, we experience few earthquakes and violent storms, making ours a peaceful place for oysters to grow large pearls over a long period of time. In addition, the China pearl industry is ancient. We combine cutting-edge technology with knowledge accumulated over thousands of years to grow the best pearls in the world.
Chinese pearls are undeniably important.
Nowadays, with production volume of 96% of pearls sold worldwide, the industry would come to a standstill without pearls from China. China is, in fact, the main pearls exporting country to Japan. In fact, a large quantity of China pearls are used for Japanese pearl jewelry.
Pearls from China have all reasons to be the perfect pearl jewelry choice for people around the world
