About Tahitian Pearls: 

  • Tahitian Pearls are Cultured pearls farmed in Polynesian ocean water
  • They are created by a type of oyster called Pinctada margaritifera: the "black-lip oyster".
  • These oysters are large and can produce pearls as large as 16mm, though 8-10mm is more common
  • Colloquially called "black pearls" Tahitian Pearls actually range from light gray to very dark gray. 
  • They exhibit greens, blues and purples, with the most valued examples showing a spectrum of all these colors. Tahitian pearls showing a that multi-hued effect are often called "peacock" color and are among the most prized.
