We make the finest freshwater pearl jewellery you need to know about.

We started Honey Papaya with a simple ambition: to sell the finest freshwater pearl jewellery in the game at the best price.

That’s why we partner with the best, ethical pearl farms. Source only the finest freshwater pearls for our timeless collections.

THE SOLUTION

Our pearl farms.

Our goal has always been to make the highest quality jewellery for our customer. After realising that the prices of our most coveted jewellery were unjustifiably high, we went looking for a solution.

We spent months finding the best freshwater pearl farms, and succeeded in Zhejiang, China at two family-run pearl farms. They are the same who supply high-end jewellery labels, and maintain ethical standards that match our own. We visit them often and build strong personal relationships with the owners.

The good news for you is that we buy these pearls direct from the farms, bypassing all middlemen, meaning that you can have the most luxurious freshwater pearls for surprisingly little.

OUR QUALITY

Made to last.

Thoughtfully designed, and carefully made, these are a few of our favourite things.

We believe that high quality and timeless design is key to your long lasting favourite pieces. That’s why we source the finest freshwater pearls with exceptional lustre, surface and shape. We bid a little more to have them set aside for us.

This way, we can make freshwater pearl jewellery that is above and beyond what you’ll normally see in brick and mortar jewellery stores, but we can still pass the savings from going direct to source onto you.
