The popular Tahitian Black Pearl is produced exclusively by the exotic black-lipped oyster found in the waters around the islands and atolls of Tahiti. Its romantic hues, reminiscent of tropical evenings, range from dramatic blue-black to a soft dove gray, with iridescent halos that dance with your every movement. Whether in an exquisite necklace or a pair of earrings, combined with sparkling diamonds, Tahitian Black Pearls offer everlasting memories of dreamy, starlit nights in Paradise.
They can contain various undertones and overtones of green, pink, blue, silver and yellow. The most valuable of these are of the darker variety, as the naturally dark tones of the Tahitian pearls is a unique quality among pearls. A true black Tahitian pearl is extremely rare, and largely considered one of the most beautiful kinds of pearls in the world. Most Tahitian pearls that are identified as “black” are actually charcoal, silver, or dark green. An advantage of the Tahitian pearl is that the oyster inside of which they grow is quite large, sometimes weighing as much as ten pounds. This means that a Tahitian pearl can more easily grow to a larger-than-average size.
This oyster is very sensitive to the pearl culturing process, which makes the pearls very costly to produce. A gift of Tahitian cultured pearls makes an extraordinary, unique gift.
