Historical Background

The Southern Pearl appears to be based on the South Sea Pearl, which are among the most expensive pearls due to their size and rarity. The South Sea Pearl is produced by the white-lip oyster (also called the South Sea pearl oyster), Pinctada maxima, which is native to the southern Pacific Ocean. This species is relatively hard to find and is not as abundant as the oysters used to produce standard pearls or black pearls, being found only in the seafloor of the open seas (as opposed to being found in bays or lagoons, shallower locations, like other pearl oysters). It is valued because it produces pearls larger than any other species of oyster. The South Sea pearl can vary in color (white, cream, pink, or golden yellow), but will always be iridescent.
