The new boutique is located in Matei, approximately 500 yards from the airport, convenient for arriving and departing visitors, local resort guests, vacation home visitors and rental guests, as well as local residents. The new boutique will add to Civa's on-island presence alongside the pearl farm and Taveuni resorts stocking Civa Fiji Pearls.
"As our business has grown we have seen an increase in local demand, so this is a natural progression progression for us. As well as adding value to our business, it is good for Taveuni - there is currently a lack of good quality pearls available through retail outlets locally. This complements our export auction sales, and also business through our resort partners here on the island."
Civa Fiji Pearls are also available at the following resort partners on Taveuni, Qamea and Vanua Levu:
- Matangi Private Island Resort
- Taveuni Dive Resort
- Aroha Taveuni Beachfront Bures
- The Remote Resort
Approximately 50% of Civa's export quality pearl harvest will now be set aside for local sales:
"Our initial target is to reserve at least half our pearls for local sales. The quality will be consistent with our current export pearls - exceptionally high, with the full range of beautiful colours. If the demand is as strong as we expect it to be, then a higher percentage will be put aside to cater for the local business."
Exports will continue through Civa's European auction partner, with the boutique and local resorts as exclusive retail outlets.
The boutique will feature a range of products with prices to suit everybody - all in Fiji's famous kaleidoscope of colours. Loose pearls, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and pendants are amongst the items in stock.
Stop by the boutique and see the wonderful items at your leisure. Visitors are welcome to sit and have a chat over pieces of interest, advice on gifts, discuss custom items or orders, or just learn more about Civa Fiji Pearls.
Products can be made to order if required, just ask if we don't have an item in your colour !!
The boutique will be open Monday to Friday 8am-4pm, and Saturday's 8am-12pm.
