Melo Melo Pearls


Unlike cultured pearls, which are farmed under controlled conditions, Melo Melo pearls are natural pearls, non-nacreous masses produced by a large sea snail called the melo melo. These exceedingly rare pearls have a fine glazed surface that sometimes bears flamelike patterns similar to a conch pearl.

Melo Melo pearls range from orange to tan to brown in color, with orange being the choicest shade. They are found in the South China Sea and west to the Andaman Sea off the coast of Burma.

The rarity and exclusivity of the Melo Melo colors in the field of gem pearls enhances their value, as well their exotic allure.
