The Mysterious Black Pearls from Tahiti

Online Shopping
When you think of pearls, you immediately think of the white, round beads usually worn as necklaces or earrings. The term pearl is sometimes used as a color itself as well, describing a creamy, white, almost luminescent object. You wouldn’t really think of a pearl as something that is black. But believe it or not, there are black pearls!

The black pearls, or Tahitian pearls are produced by the “Pinctada margaritifera”, a black-lipped oyster. The pearls are rare since only a number of oysters can produce those pearls. Though it may seem like they are black, the Tahitian pearls are not quite black. They are most often silver, charcoal or a mixture of different colors with green as the dominant color. It is also important to note that Tahitian pearls are NOT solely from Tahiti. Tahiti does not have pearl farms on the island, but it is the trading hub and commercial center for the pearls. Pearl farms are instead found throughout French Polynesia: From Gambier Islands to the Micronesian Islands. Some countries such as Australia, Seychelles and Vietnam have produced pearls that are “black” but those pearls are not really considered as Tahitian pearls.

Tahitian pearls come in various shapes. It may be round, semi-round, oval, teardrop, baroque and sem-baroque. As was stated in the previous paragraph, the Tahitian pearls are not really black, but dubbed as “black pearls” because the hues are generally darker. These pearls may also have various overtones and undertones, including green, yellow, pink, blue and silver.

The pearls are truly rare and extremely beautiful. The oyster’s inner shell is equally attractive, making it popular, and it is being hunted for as well. It almost got extinct by the 20th century, but efforts have been made to conserve and rehabilitate the oyster.

Since these black pearls are the most exotic and sought after pearls, it is also pricey. The price starts at $1000. As with any other pearls, round and semi-round Tahitian pearls are the most expensive of its kind. The drop and button shapes are next. Baroque types of pearls are a bargain, relative to the other types. Larger Tahitian pearls would also be more expensive than smaller ones. They would usually be around 9-12 mm. When the size reaches around 14mm, it is considered very large already. Price would increase per millimetre as well.

One must be very careful in purchasing accessories made of Tahitian pearls, some might not be real. There are instances when sellers would treat pearls so that they would look like Tahitian pearls. One may look at the small scratches or imperfections, which would help identify real pearls from imitations. Imitation pearls would most of the time be perfectly smooth. Real pearls, on the other hand, would have small scratches due to the sand that could get in the oyster while the pearl is forming.

Tahitian pearls give a unique air of elegance to the person who wears the accessory. With black as a symbol of simplicity and of elegance as well, it could instantly make anyone feel good. Tahitian pearls may come in different color tones, one must choose what would be the most flattering for her.
