    Default Fiji Pearls in Departures Magazine

    This just came out last week and I don't believe it's been posted here yet!

    https://www.departures.com/travel/su...l-farming-fiji

    There is one pretty major announcement in this article that is somewhat hidden in the text. It's fantastic for Justin and Leanne! But it does mean we won't be getting Fijian pearls anymore (we as in Pearl Paradise). But I couldn't be happier for them!

    Good for them! I'm sorry PP won't be carrying Fijian pearls going forward, but I will treasure my Fijian pendant all the more.

    They are truly lovely pearls..sorry you won't be getting them anymore. But as long as their business is going well that's what's important.

    There are other pearl farmers in Figi - Civa (https://civafijipearls.com/) operates there I understand. And there may well be others. I've not dealt with them directly but have watched their info and their pearls are lovely

    Thanks for sharing this article, Jeremy! Congratulations to Justin & Leanne and yes, they are truly luxury pearls. I treasure my Fijian pearls as well, and feel very fortunate to have them.
