Tahitian cultured pearls or “Black Pearls” have been farmed or cultivated since the 1960’s in the black-lipped pearl oyster, Latin name – Pinctada Margaritifera. They are found amongst the atolls and islands in the archipelago that makes up French Polynesia

The History of Black Pearls

The production of Black Pearls these days averages 8, 9 and 10 millimetres in size and the shapes of the pearls are predominantly round, off round, drop, semi drop, button, circled and semi baroque and baroque. Over the decades, Tahitian pearls have garnered global acclaim for their exquisite beauty and diversity of colours, ranging from deep jet black to a mesmerising spectrum encompassing peacock, green, pink, aubergine, and beyond. Today, black pearls continue to captivate jewellery enthusiasts worldwide, serving as symbols of elegance, sophistication, and timeless allure.

There can be a rainbow iridescence in the colours of the Tahitian pearls from jet black or telephone ( Bakelite) black, to peacock, green, pink, aubergine, red, silver, platinum, pistachio, blue, cream, off white, brown and yellow, a genuine kaleidoscope of colours. The pearls have both undertones and overtones of colour making them so individual, so hard to match, and so exquisite to look at in detail. All these colours are naturally occurring, so nothing is needed to be done to the pearls after harvesting except drilling and turning into jewellery.
