Justin Hunter had a big dream. Why not, he thought, grow pearls that looked nothing like the traditional black pearl. Why not produce pearls in beautifully distinctive hues that are also larger than what are traditionally grown.
Justin came back home to Fiji from the United States to establish J. Hunter Pearls Fiji in 2000 where he implemented his bold new pearl farming techniques.
Now, he is reaping the rewards of his innovative thinking. J. Hunter Pearls are highly sought after for their uniqueness and untraditional colours.
Justin's dream did not end with growing the world's best pearls. His goal was to blend pearl farming with Fiji's natural environment and its indigenous people to create a working partnership. Justin is intensely committed to keeping the marine environment of Savusavu Bay in its pristine condition and to improving the lives of the people of the community. J. Hunter Pearls Fiji provides much needed jobs for local people, which gives them the resources to improve their villages and their lives. Justin's commitment also includes providing school scholarships to deserving students and to be personally involved with the Savusavu community at large.
