Over the years, Paspaley designs have been displayed in famous institutions globally – including the Smithsonian in Washington DC – and sold in international auctions, including the Christie’s Magnificent Jewels auctions, alongside a number of other global luxury brands.
Our Exceptional Creations epitomise the craftsmanship of Paspaley, featuring the most magnificent pearls from our private collection. Every so often, this also includes some of our exquisite natural pearls.
Among the rarest of gemstones, natural pearls are produced by just a fraction of the world’s wild oysters. Today, even those are threatened by pollution and overfishing. As the world’s pearling leader, Paspaley occasionally offers precious natural pearls from our collection to the market.
PASPALEY NATURAL PEARL EARRINGS
“Only a company as dedicated to uncompromising perfection as Paspaley could have produced these extraordinary jewels.”
We are one of the last companies still fishing for wild Pinctada maxima oysters and are therefore one of the world’s last sources of important natural pearls. In May 2017, we sold a unique pair of natural pearl and diamond earrings at the Christie’s Magnificent Jewels auction for USD830,000. These earrings were representative of the exceptional quality of natural pearls from our natural pearl collection.
Exquisitely matched for shape, lustre, and size, they were left undrilled to display their perfection.
PASPALEY NATURAL PEARL STRAND
“One of the finest natural pearl necklaces ever known”
The finest natural pearls discovered by Paspaley over generations have been accumulated into an important collection. Every so often, the company offers some significant pieces from the collection to the market.
In May 2017, this triple strand of Paspaley natural pearls sold for USD2.1 million at the Christies Magnificent Jewels auction in Hong Kong.
