About our client
Paspaley is the world's most significant producer of cultured pearls.
Although the gems remain in the South Sea pearl category, Paspaley's pearls have become a category of their own, due to the superior and widely recognised quality. As a result, these gems are most recognised simply as Paspaley Pearls.
Each Paspaley pearl is not only a treasured gem, but an opportunity with infinite possibilities. From this realisation was born a desire to create jewellery inspired by the individuality of each pearl, and the Paspaley pearling business soon evolved into a retail brand.
Paspaley is not only an iconic Australian brand but one that is now recognised across the globe as producers of the finest of jewellery products.
The national retail network comprises boutiques of beauty ranging from the original flagship store in Martin Place, Sydney through to three stores in Melbourne, then across to Perth, Darwin, and Broom, and circling back to the newest gem within the family, at Crown Towers in Barangaroo.
