Founded in 1952, the Paspaley Pearls Group owns and operates an assembly of companies. While running Australia's most iconic pearling operations is still the Group's core business, including production, wholesale, and retail, they have expanded their operations to include marine engineering, aviation, agriculture, hospitality and resort accommodation, and property interests.
