Civa (Fiji) Pearls Ltd was founded in 2006 by two Canadian expats Claude Michel Prevost and Danielle Belanger.
Lured by the extraordinary colours already in production in Fiji, Claude and Danielle began their own pearl production in 2007 with a subsequent first harvest in 2010. Most of this production is currently exported to Europe, with a small amount retained and available from partnering resorts here in Fiji.
The pearl farm is situated on the windward side of the Taveuni, the 3rd largest Island of the Fiji group. Spread over 55 hectares in the pristine environment of Wailoa Lagoon, the farm enjoys a constant flow of pure water from the South Pacific to produce these incredible gems of the sea.
Recognized all over the world for their specific natural colours, Fijian pearls are the most sought after pearls in the world.
Civa (Fiji) Pearls Ltd believe that reinvesting in communities is crucial for mutual long term growth. We understand that a company is always part of a society.
Our farm has strong commitments with the respective local traditional fishing rights owners to maximise the benefits of cooperative enterprise.
Through scholarship funds, village development projects and empowerment village workshops, Civa (Fiji) Pearls Ltd gives back through these programs at least 2.5% of our revenue and very often, much much more.
Through sustainable farm operations and local partnerships Civa (Fiji) Pearls Ltd has established a Marine Protected Area for the benefit of all, and currently embarking on a long term reef rehabilitation program for future generations to enjoy.
