Pearls: CPAA Documentary Goes on a Fantastic ‘Journey’

Fantastic VoyageIf you’ve ever wondered how the beautiful pearls you sell actually get to your store—not counting the FedEx truck!—you’ll want to check out the recently released multi-DVD documentary, The Journey of the Pearl ($49.95 at or at JCK Las Vegas).The project—produced by the Cultured Pearl Association of America—was a “labor of love” for Peter Bazar, president of Imperial Pearl in Providence, R.I. “It has always been a dream to document pearl farming around the globe,” Bazar told the press in February 2011 when the project kicked off.A documentary film crew including Peter’s son, Josh, and the Los Angeles–based On the Reel Productions spent 29 days traversing the pearl world by boat and airplane in early 2011. They stopped in several regions in each producing country: Japan, the Philippines, Fiji, China, Tahiti, New Zealand, and Hong Kong.
