Does any one know of farmers, producers, etc., that practice fair trade and utilize well regarded industry production practices in the pearl industry for whites/golds?

Check out our members Rusty and Bronwyn, Torres Pearls http://www.torrespearls.com/ Some lovely pearls on their website, clearly raised with TLC!

At this time, I believe Sea of Cortez Pearls has the only official designation as "Fair Trade." And Kamoka Pearls' farm practices would certainly qualify them for this designation, IMHO.

Hi Art, your research is taking you on a real journey :)

If you haven't already seen this, you are in for special treat

It's starts as a PG thread for a necklace called 'Stella Maris' which was put together by Douglas from the Sea of Cortez pearl farm that Pattye mentions as having 'Fair Trade' status

But it goes on over a couple of years, and has some great content (and stunning photos) and even a video

Hope you enjoy it !
