The Tides collection draws its inspiration from the World’s largest tropical tides, found on Cygnet Bay’s door step. This unique marine environment, both harsh and beautiful lends to the creation of the most beautiful pearls. The Pinctada maxima oyster naturally found in the coastal waters of the Kimberley, North West Australia thrives on these tidal movements.
The Tides collection showcases the power of these tides, giant whirlpools and standing tidal waves, recently described by scientists as the fastest ocean currents in the World. These giant tides run through the islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago off the tip of the Dampier Peninsula, where Cygnet Bay Pearls are grown. Isolated, rugged and exhilarating.
Every pearl comes from the Cygnet Bay Pearls Farm. Best referred to as an Australian South Sea Pearl, but also colloquially called a Broome Pearl, the precious gift of a Cygnet Bay Pearl captures the spirit of the pristine Kimberley; unspoilt, wild and free, bringing with it genuine beauty and authenticity. You will receive a certificate stating your pearl’s origin, and grade, along with information about your pearl’s setting.
Your Cygnet Bay Pearl is not only a pearl from an environmentally sound and sustainable process but also represents a piece of Australia’s pearling heritage.
