Tahiti Pearls

Black South Sea pearls are produced by the Pinctada margaritifera oyster, native to
French Polynesian Islands.

The growth period is approximately 18 to 24 months.

Tahitian pearls come in a mesmerizing array of colors, from silver to deep black, with shades of green, blue,
pink and aubergine. These pearls have become some of the most sought-after expensive pearls in the world.
Because of their vast color range, matching these pearls in to finished necklace is an enormous task requiring
thousands of loose pearls to create a single strand.

These pearls have an average size of 8 to 15mm, but some very rare gems larger than 18mm have been found.
The shapes are separated in round, oval, button, tear drop, baroque and circled.
