There is something so alluring about a string of pearls. Coco Chanel wore them in piles around her neck, while warriors were said to carry them into battle for good luck. Both refined and yet rebellious at the same time, these mysterious gems have been enjoying something of a revival over recent years. But their enduring timelessness means that the appeal of the pearl can never truly fade. And no company understands this better than Paspaley — a family-run brand whose raison d’être is to produce some of the world’s finest pearls, sustainably. 

Unlike many other accessory houses, Paspaley has always maintained a staunch commitment to environmental responsibility. And this is a dedication that has now been recognised by the prestigious Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), which recently certified the Australian pearling industry as the world’s most environmentally sustainable choice. Dominated by Paspaley’s pearling networks, this industry comprises not just the pearls produced from wild caught pearl oysters, but also the mother-of-pearl obtained from the shell and the pearl shell meat itself.

“Sustainable production is part of our DNA and we've been operating this way for longer than it's been fashionable.”

“The MSC standard is the global gold standard,” says Aaron Irving, Executive Officer of the Pearl Producers Association. And, as one of the few companies still diving for wild pearl oysters, Paspaley is the world’s foremost source of cultured Australian South Sea pearls. So the company’s position at the forefront of the local pearling industry means that the brand is especially committed to preserving these precious marine ecosystems for the future. “We clearly see the market demanding environmentally sustainable production,” explains James Paspaley, Executive Director of Paspaley Group, but he goes on to point out that sustainable production is also part of the Paspaley DNA. “We have been operating this way for much longer than it has been fashionable,” he says.

Of course, Paspaley saves the fashionable side of things for its principles of design. Which the brand most recently demonstrated with the launch of its Rockpool collection. Celebrating Paspaley’s connection with the sea, this range introduced beautiful sea foam tones in the form of rare gems such as Paraiba and Tanzanite, alongside their signature pearls. As a brand that combines both original design and environmental sustainability, then, Paspaley is exactly the sort of accessory brand we need right now.
