53c Raiatea, Pearls, Pearls and more Pearls

Black Pearl farms are scattered throughout the glistening lagoons on Tahaa
and Raiatea, and touring one of these farms was our next stop. Each step of
the process to create these beautiful cultured pearls was explained to us.
We watched on as the craftsmen meticulously retrieved the completed pearl
and carefully insert a new sphere of shell which the living oysters would
slowly cover in a stunning array colours over time.
