about Tahitian Pearls:

 

Exotic black pearls from the Pinctada margaritifera or black-lip pearl oyster, are more commonly known as Tahitian pearls. These pearls actually exhibit the widest spectrum of natural colors of any salt water pearl from almost black to peacock green, eggplant pistachio silver, blue and sometimes almost white. Tahitian pearls are relative newcomers to the cultured pearl world, popularized only as early as the mid-1970's by the efforts of Jean Claude Brouillet, Salvador Assael, Robert Wan and others.

 

Unlike the classic light Japanese akoya pearl, Tahitian pearls are much larger (up to 20mm) and typically have a naturally dark body color. These pearls have become some of the most sought-after, expensive pearls in the world.  Because of their vast color range, matching these pearls into a finished strand is an enormous task requiring thousands of loose pearls to create a single strand. Tahitian pearls are considered to be the second most valuable commercially farmed pearls in the world. Tahitian cultured pearls are bead-nucleated, but unlike akoya pearls, the nacre is typically very thick. The thinnest nacre allowed by French Polynesian law for export is 0.8 mm, which is a depth that would be considered, in the Akoya world, extremely thick.
