Chimere’s Pearls are grown in the crystal blue waters of the Abrolhos Islands Western Australia. A chance discovery  in 1992 signalled the beginning of an industry and the formation of the company Abrolhos Pearls (WA) Pty Ltd. After much preliminary research on the wild shell stocks collected from the reefs and lagoons, the company commenced the first culturing experiments in 1998. Twelve months later the team was rewarded with a small pearl harvest, which proved conclusively that a pearl culturing industry at the Abrolhos Islands was possible. The first commercial harvest of cultured pearls was released in September 2000.

Our two pearl farms are situated in the Southern Group and the Easter group of the Abrolhos Islands.

Abrolhos Pearls (WA) Pty Ltd places the highest value on the pristine environment in which its pearls are cultured. Abrolhos Pearls (WA) Pty Ltd, produce Pinctada Margaritifera (Black Lipped Pearls) and Pinctada Fucata (Akoya Pearls).  Abrolhos Pearls (WA) Pty Ltd owns and operates the only licenced Hatchery at the Abrolhos Islands.

Abrolhos Pearl (WA) Pty Ltd trading as Chimere Pearls opened their showroom in 2007. Located at 272 Foreshore Drive, offering unique designs and one of a kind pieces, featuring the exquisite pearls straight from their farms and showcased in a relaxing, comfortable gallery.

The name "Chimere" was chosen for its meaning. "Chi" is the body and soul "Mere" is French for water. Together the body and soul of the water is the pearl. "Chimera" is also found in the Thesaurus to mean rainbow colours, which is very fitting for our beautiful colours in our pearls.
