did you actualky go to Broome ?They were gorgeous.
I just bought a single pearl on a diamond setting. It was from Willie Creek one of the 4 remaining producers in the area that deal with true Broome Pearls. I really wanted one as a memento of an amazing trip.
I can't put my hand on the specifics of it but it is a 15-16mm pearl.
I paid for my teenage daughter to harvest her own pearl (pics below) they then grade it and price it and you can buy it. I will set it for her in something one day.
They also tried pearl meat which was not enjoyed but apparently a very expensive delicacy.
Ha ha the 10 hour drive between two points was a bit dicey nothing but red dirt and roadkill as far as the eye could see but 100% worth it.Lovely lustre !! And drop is my favourite shape . Your daughters pearl looks gorgeous too ! What a fabulous trip. I have a couple of friends who have driven that from Broome to Perth and said it was wonderful. But you're right about the age of the kids ! lol
