Written on the 28 February 2018When Allure South Sea Pearls founders Bill Reed AM and Lindsay Youd speak of their craft and the timeless gems of nature they dedicate their days to, their faces light up.
Allure was born from Bill and Lindsay's ingrained passion and knowledge of their industry. The love the pearling pioneers have for the process of growing a pearl, from the first seeding to the birth' two years later, has never dimmed. This fascination has continued to grow, inspiring new and unique collections.
