We tried to visit the Pearl Farm. We went there at noon, and there was a lady sitting in front of the building. When she noticed that we were coming, she said "Hello", stood up, went inside the building and closed the door in front of us.
Then she disappeared and we could not see her - or anyone else - anymore.
Rather rude way to handle potential customers...

This small and idyllic farm right on the beach is nothing like the typical farm I am used to. This family-owned business offers customers a guided tour of their mussels, with information on how the beautiful black pearls are grown. very informative! Even cooler to buy a pearl from the delicate and charming little shop after you learn where it came from! I would recommend everyone to visit this gem of a business, but don’t expect super modern facilities, this is local, traditional, but charming!

Clearly not a pearl farm as mentioned in other reviews. I want to add that the Sales Assistant is sullen and unfriendly. I wanted to buy pearls and when I asked the Sales Assistant about the prices of the different sizes of single pearls, she became impatient and rude! Disappointing experience and a waste of time.

The Pearl Farm is a black pearl factory in Praslin Island, not far from the airport. There one can learn something about the formation, growing and valuation of pearls. In one of the outbuildings of the resort some clamps and several kinds of pearls are exhibited in display cases so that one can observe, among other aspects, the different sizes and shapes of pearls which can be obtained through clamps upbringing. At the same place a video movie can be watched. It’s supposed to show the manufacturing process to be followed to get a commercialisable pearl particularly on the basis of the size thereof.
Apart from that outbuilding, in the open air, there are several shallow pools for oyster culture. The pearls are created in the oyster shells when a foreign object goes into the oyster. A long time (some four years) must elapse before a nice medium sized pearl is formed. The isolation of that object by some layers of mother of pearl, a bio mineral consisting of lime and organic material, is required therefor. It’s interesting to know some details about that process, which can be learnt in that farm.
There is also a shop by the farm, as part of the same concern, where pearls, jewllery and souvenirs are sold. The prices however aren’t cheap.

I bought a pair of earings for my wife there nine years ago, and went back there this summer to buy some earings to my 2 daughters in order to offer them when they will be 18.
Seychelles pearls are typical grey/gold which is quite rare and you can buy one pearl or jewels (earings, bracelet, pedants).
These pears are quite expensive but not that much regarding pearls prices in Europe, and considering their particular color (haven't seen a lot in Europe)

Basically they tell you how they grow these black pearls with a video. You won't see any pearl plant because there are at a place in the see. Although 50scr per Person is not much, it is not worth it.

This place is not a pearl farm and as a mater of fact they dont even have a live oyster. We just get robbed by paying 100 rp to watch a 5 minutes video about pearls and see the clams that they have in their pools.
The pearl shop is rediculous expensive and actually you can found pearl jewlery of higher quality with certifficates in the one third of the price at the Praslin or Mahe airports.
Dont loose your precious vacation time.....

One of our first stops, it was very educational. the young lady was extremely knowledgeable in explaining the process of farming pearls followed by a short video. They have hands on interaction with the local sea life and a showroom for beautiful black pearl jewelry.
