The Tahitian pearl (or black pearl) is an organic gem formed from the black lip oyster (Pinctada Margaritifera). These pearls are primarily cultivated around the islands of French Polynesia, around Tahiti. Tahitian pearls come in a range of colors from white to black, and may contain various undertones and overtones of green, pink, blue, silver and yellow. The most valuable of these are of the darker variety, as the naturally dark tones of the Tahitian pearl is a unique quality among pearls. A true black Tahitian pearl is extremely rare and largely considered one of the most beautiful kinds of pearls in the world. Most Tahitian pearls that are identified as “black” are actually charcoal grey, silver, or dark green.
