T
he majesty of the Autore brand is rooted in the sublime beauty of pearls. A dynamic, vertically integrated powerhouse in pearling, the state-of-the-art technology and comprehensive analytics The Autore Group employs in establishing and maintaining such an influential entity take place within a paradigm of reverence for these ethereal gifts of nature. The scale of the company’s production is breathtaking; the 10 farm sites they own and operate on some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world harvest in excess of 350,000 pearls per year. Yet strategically built into their operations’ many efficiencies and processes is an esteemed consideration of each individual pearl’s unique characteristics.

The allure of pearls dates back centuries and is punctuated by several world famous pearl lovers. Considered the tears of gods, infused with the mystical powers of the moon, or enshrined as a symbol of purity, pearls have played a prominent role in multiple cultures and religions throughout history.

Worn for protection or showcased as irrefutable markers of status, pearls have been coveted since ancient times, and were traditionally only accessible to the very wealthy and powerful. Thanks to the ingenuity and perseverance of pioneer Kokichi Mikimoto (whose efforts were augmented by the work of two other men), in the late 19th/early 20th century, the process of cultivating pearls meant that this depleting natural resource could, when nurtured by skilled hands, be replenished.

A visionary and an innovator, Rosario Autore founded The Autore Group, in 1991. Now considered one of the largest South Sea pearl companies in the world, the production of pearls the company personally oversees goes directly from the crystal-clear waters of Australia or the tropical islands of Indonesia to the brand’s headquarters in Sydney, Australia. After being sorted and graded by hand and eye using their proprietary Five S’s system establishing Shine, Surface Shade, Shape and Size™, Autore’s pearls are lovingly distributed to prestigious jewelry houses across the globe. In their eponymous collection of jewelry, Autore hand selects each pearl from their own inventory for the creation of imaginative pieces where the pearl is always the focus.

Autore’s jewelry collection is diverse, encompassing a range of styles and price points. Whether a collection is inspired by trends in jewelry, fashion, interiors or colors, or a more timeless sensibility, the thoughtfulness and intention applied to the design process results in an elegant and sophisticated aesthetic. The sheer volume of pearls the brand’s designers have at their disposal means that even the smallest nuances in color variations can be honored, ensuring a perfect complement to the metals and gemstones incorporated into a piece.

And the company’s ongoing and dedicated commitment to preserving and regenerating the environment in which their pearls are harvested, the support they provide to local communities and their investments in training and research are testament to the value they place in the majestic and mysterious gems that define the foundational ethos of The Autore Group.
