These rare naturally black pearls are grown in Pinctada margaritifera oysters that are native to the warm South Sea waters of the outer islands of French Polynesia; they don't actually hail from Tahiti as their name would suggest.
Through our close connections with growers & traders in French Polynesia, we are able to deliver the finest quality Tahitian pearls for less than retail prices. Their status and value are determined based on several criteria.
All our Tahitian pearls are carefully selected for their quality and beauty.
It's their exquisite, almost magical shimmer and fabulous array of natural shades that captivate connoisseurs and jewellery lovers. Tahitian are the only pearls that come in a full colour spectrum, from creamy whites through greys, peacock blues and purples to intense blacks.
The surface characteristics of a Tahitian pearl influence its value greatly. The presence of natural growth imperfections or blemishes can lower the value of an otherwise perfectly lusterous tahitian pearl.
As for shape, most sought after are the perfect round or drop shape although they can appear in other variations of organic and unique shapes such as baroque and Keishi.
Tahitian pearls' large size also makes them highly covetable; most are between 8mm and 20mm in size.
