Tahitian Black Pearls
Tahitian Black Pearls are some of the rarest, most valuable pearls available and have the distinction of being the world's only naturally . They range in size from 9mm to 16mm making them some of the largest pearls available. They are rarer than other types of pearls, since only a small number of oysters survive to produce a fine Tahitian pearl.
Tahitian Pearl Starfish Pendant
Pearl pendant enhanced with .18 carats of diamonds, a true Tahitian saltwater pearl. Excellent luster, blemish free, deep peacock overtone, set in 14k white gold with 20 diamonds.
Black Pearls are harvested in the azure blue lagoons French Polynesia from the Pinctada Margaratifera oyster, one of the largest pearl-producing oysters in the world. One hundred times more rare than white pearls, Black Pearls are considered to be one of the rarest gems on Earth.
Although they are called Black Pearls, the colors range from iridescent emerald green, sea green, pale silver blue, melon, peach-copper, pink, cranberry, Bordeaux, indigo and aubergine, to dark green and deep midnight black. Shimmering, iridescent, exotic and rare, Black Pearls are the ultimate gift.
Tahitian Black Pearl Bamboo Man's Ring
Available in three finishes:
â€¢ Natural sterling silver
â€¢ Argentium sterling
The setting anchors the 10 mm black Tahitian pearl so it rotates and appears to float on the surface. The ring's base has subtle bamboo design elements while its shape – wide at the top, tapered in the back – insures maximum ergonomic comfort.
Since each Tahitian Black Pearl is unique and doesn't resemble any other, it takes hundreds of Tahitian Pearls to find the matching ones required to make a single strand. So if you're looking for unique pearl jewelry with exceptional value, Tahitian Pearl jewelry might be just what you're looking for.
Catherine the Great of Russia owned a strand of 30 Tahitian black pearls, the largest weighing as much as .14 ounces. In Europe, pearls became a hot item reserved only for royalty through laws that forbade any citizen to own or wear pearl jewelry!
