Honey Papaya is an online jewellery brand that enables you to buy beautifully made freshwater pearl jewellery at honest, reasonable prices.

Our concept is very simple. Everything we sell is sourced and created by us in our workshops, from the very beginning to the very end, bypassing all middlemen. We avoid expensive overheads-from warehouses to shops-then offer them to you, minus the traditional retail markup.

All our jewellery is made with real cultured freshwater pearls, which have been grown by mussels or oysters and carefully selected by our team for their quality. We do not sell fake or imitation pearls.

We endeavour to bring you the easiest and most enjoyable shopping experience possible at Honey Papaya, therefore we will frequently look at introducing new and simpler ways to pay. Currently, you can pay online with the following payment methods:


Visa Debit

American Express

Master Card

We’re afraid we only ever have a limited number of each product. This is because we work with specialists rather than bulk manufacturers.

That said, popular products always return to the site, so it’s worth checking back in every now and then to see if your favourite has made a return. It can also be a good idea to sign up for our daily email to stay in the loop.

We know there’s nothing worse than watching the clock and waiting for your package to arrive, so we will not only provide you with regular email updates on the status of your order, but if you log in to ‘My Orders’ page you can also find the tracking number to keep an eagle eye on the precious cargo.

If you want to change the address or simply learn the whereabouts of your order you can also contact the carrier.
