This week I had the opportunity to chat with Renee from Red Orchid Travel about Tahitian pearls.  It was something out of my comfort zone as recording something for a You Tube channel seemed quite intimidating.  I am trying very hard to say yes to things I find challenging to push myself out of my comfort zone.

We had a lovely chat and I got to talk about one of my favorite subjects – pearls!  I reflected on my 25th anniversary trip to Fiji and discovering Fiji pearls.  Tahitian pearls and Fijian pearls are quite similar in nature.  They both offer a wide spectrum of natural colours that make them truly unique and rare.

We also chatted about what to look for when shopping for Tahitians.  I did a quick showcase of some of the ways I have used Tahitian and Fijian pearls and how it’s possible to craft exquisite jewellery using slightly imperfect pearls at a more accessible price point

I am envious of Renee and her lucky group going to Tahiti and would love to be a stowaway.  If the people and the sights of Tahiti are as lovely as Fiji, I can only imagine how incredible this trip will be.
