    Here 3 more photo's.
    The farm is between 2 islands and the tide is quite strong, so the sea is moving in and out with. The wind was also quite strong there. The farm is known for producing many 'Mikimoto' quality pearls. One Japanese grafter is excellent in producing round pearls and another for ovals/drops. According to my information it is the place in the gonad where the nucleus is places. Remarkable was also the low number of baroque pearls.
    On the photos in these 3: an oyster, keshi pearls and a new kind of pearl, the Orient pearl with a keshi fresh water bead.

    There are many threads about why we are against this shady business (buying freshwater pearls packed in dead, juvenile saltwater oysters in dangerous chemicals). No one here will give you information about where to buy them.

    Do yourself a favor and read up on it. Then avoid it.
    Edit: I have replied in more detail to your private message.

    Remember that this site is made up of thousands of members who hold individual opinions. We don't vote for a platform.

    That said, pearl farmers grow pearls in mollusks, then harvest the pearls.

    The oysters or mussels that are seeded with pearls for opening at parties or as a novelty are made in factories after puchasing mollusks and pearls, then inserting the pearls, one to a mollusk and preserving. You won't find a farmer selling these preserved mollusks, but there are factories that do this as a business.
