I learned so much about pearls that I never knew before, and my guide knew the answers to all my questions. Cost 180K rupiah per person and minimum of 2 people, took about an hour and they literally showed us Oyster surgery how to make the pearls, I really loved it.

It cost 180,000IDR per adult which was very reasonable for the experience. Saw everything from baby oysters under a microscope to the feeding room to the surgery center to birthing a fresh pearl. We were not able to keep the new pearl and the option to buy an oyster with a new pearl was not available as others have said.... More

We visited with our 2 kids who loved the tour. Learned a lot about the farming of pearls. I was afraid of the 'hard-sell' approach of some other jewelry producers, but this was not the case at all.

Lombok has a number of pearl farms and showrooms that I am sure offer cheaper items. The range was not large but I saw something I liked and bought it. I trusted the name and the brand and the design of the items were more to my taste. Did I get a bargain? I have no idea but similar items... More

I love pearls and their lustre. The versatility of how they can be set into jewellery, pendants, necklaces, earrings - drop or studs, broaches, bracelets and rings. The mystery of how they are formed. Except the mystery has been solved by visiting Autore Pearl Farm Tours and their showroom. As a frequent visitor to Senggigi, Lombok I have passed the... More
