Beauty From Indonesian South Sea

I’m captivated by its beauty from the first time I saw its picture. I thought that it was covered by gold, but it wasn’t. Its color is definitely golden. Its round shape was shining and looked immaculate. I knew I fell in love with it and dreamt one day I could have one. Can you guess what it is?

It’s the Golden South Sea Pearl.

Originally comes from Indonesian South Sea, this amazing beauty is one of a kind. Nowhere else in this planet produces this gift of nature, but in South Sea. In Indonesia itself there are many pearl farms. Bali, Lombok and Papua are the heart of the farms. Lombok’s pearls are well-known internationally. As in Papua, the native island, Raja Ampat region is where the oysters that produces these beautiful pearls live.

I once wrote about the pearl in my Indonesian article: Mengenal Indonesian South Sea Pearls


South Sea Pearls come in wide variety of colors, from silver, golden, cream and pink. The price is high in the market as it is very special. It takes 4 years for an oyster to produce only ONE pearl! Can you imagine that?  Not only the color, its size is bigger compared to any other kind of pearls in this planet so you can easily recognize it. That’s why it’s very expensive.

Once it’s made into jewellery the price is getting higher and higher. For me, to be able to own a nice ring with one golden pearl on it is out of this world. What about having a bracelet full of golden pearls, or a necklace? Ow, it would be very awesome!

I suddenly remember one verse in The Holy Quran, that is Surah Ar-Rahman (55) verse 22:

Yakhruju minhuma-l lu'lu'u wa-l marjaan
يَخْرُجُ مِنْهُمَا اللُّؤْلُؤُ وَالْمَرْجَانُ
From both of them emerge pearl and coral

Even Allah mention pearl in His verse! And not only in that verse, Allah has mentioned it many times inside The Holy Quran. How can I not fall in love with its beauty?

What about you? Have you got any pearl jewellery?
