Tahitian cultured pearls offer a dramatic touch. The natural black color of these pearls comes from the color of the oyster's black lips.
These pearls are traditionally called "black," but their color can range from a metallic silver, to the color of graphite. And within this range of colors they can have bluish, purplish, or greenish overtones.
Tahitian cultured pearls are cultivated from the black-lipped variety of the Pinctada margaritifera cumingi oyster, which are usually 6- to 12-inches in diameter and produce large pearls. This oyster is very sensitive to the pearl culturing process, which makes the pearls very costly to produce. A gift of Tahitian cultured pearls makes an extraordinary, unique gift.
