Some consider Tahitian pearls of any hue and shape to be the most glamorous and fashion-forward type of pearl available, and Tahitian black pearl necklaces make a strong, confident statement. Rings, earrings and bracelets are also available from American Pearl to create a professionally styled look for any occasion.
Tahitian pearls, sometimes called black pearls, actually come in a variety of natural colors. Grey, blue and green can be found alongside the better-known colors, such as peacock, black, black-green and eggplant! Although peacock, green and black-green are the rarest colors and thus the most sought-after, all Tahitian pearls have a metallic sheen and depth of color that set them apart. They can come in a variety of shapes from perfectly round to baroque or asymmetrical.
A perfectly matched black Tahitian pearl necklace adds drama to an outfit, and is ideal for those who are in love with one particular shade of these rare "black pearls." These strands are very difficult to create. Hundreds of pearls from many different pearl farms are examined by American Pearl to create a single stand of matched pearls. The pearls must be matched in quality, color and size, which is not an easy task as Tahitians naturally come in a wide variety. Although these necklaces would not be out of place at the opera, they can add allure to cocktails or a fine dinner. Additionally, they are a classic wedding or anniversary gift.
American Pearl also offers the very rare keshi pearl! These are formed when an oyster rejects the nucleus of a pearl, an occurrence that is very uncommon. The nucleus is rejected before the nacre can adhere to it, so a free-form collection of pure nacre is created as a by-product. This concentration of nacre is often more lustrous and pure than a traditional pearl; not only are keshi pearls more beautiful, they are also more unusual. American Pearl offers luxurious keshi necklaces; these necklaces are perfect for any outfit or event. Baroque or drop pearls should also be considered when making any decisions about pearl accessories. Whimsical and unpredictable, these pearls are ideal for an artistic soul and can be worn to a more informal event. As prices for these asymmetric pearls are based on the smallest diameter of the individual pearl, a pearl can be priced as if it is no larger than 10mm but swell out to a magnificent 15mm wide. These pearls are as lustrous and beautiful as their rounder cousins, but are often less expensive. For this reason, these pearls, none of which are ever alike, can be the perfect choice. The irregular shapes of baroque or drop pearls appeal to many who want to combine the elite allure of a pearl necklace with a slightly more informal appearance.
For those who admire all the hues of this dramatic gem, American Pearl creates multicolored Tahitian pearl necklaces as well. These necklaces are just as carefully matched for quality and size as single-color pearl necklaces, but showcase the full depth of the color spectrum of the Tahitian pearl. They are also versatile; their variety of colors allows them to match any outfit. When your special event is finished, however, and you return to your favorite blue jeans or slip on your best-tailored suit, a solid strand of Tahitian pearls may overwhelm your outfit. In this instance, the style called 'Tin Cup," where single pearls are sprinkled around a delicate chain, can be ideal. Named after the Kevin Costner movie that made them popular, they are sometimes also called "station necklaces." Station or Tin Cup necklaces are appropriate to wear on the red carpet, to brunch or even on a supermarket trip. The look can be further enhanced with precious or semi-precious stones, such as diamonds or emeralds, recalling the classic Tiffany "Diamonds by the Yard" style.
