Tahitian Pearls are commonly referred to as black pearls or even black South Sea Pearls and are farmed in the aqua waters of French Polynesia. These exquisite pearls capture the light and make stunning pearl necklaces, pearl earrings, pearl bracelets and pearl rings.
Tahitian Pearls are produced from the black lip oyster, these oysters are large in size and can measure up to a foot across and weigh as much as ten pounds. As well known as Tahitian Pearls are, the modern cultured pearl farming industry has only been in Tahiti for three decades. Before this time, Tahitian Pearls were incredibly rare. The atoll lagoons in Tahiti make it the perfect environment for farming and cultivating Tahitian Pearls.
