Welcome to the world of natural pearls!

The Society des Perles Finas (Natural Pearl Society) has been created to draw experts, information and the most current science to an online nexus for natural pearls.  Naturally occurring (Wild) pearls are possibly the oldest of all recognized gems. Treasured by royalty and the very rich from the first written accounts of mankind , Natural pearls are still shrouded in mystery and folklore. Our intent is to savor and document the folklore... but shed light on the science. Please join us in our adventure, watch the list of members and contributers grow and  bring awareness to the north American world of one of nature's most beautiful and desirable treasures.
Thank You,
