The magic of natural color Tahitian black pearls, unlike their white South Sea counterparts, is in the way the dark pearl captures the light and delivers it back in an incandescent glow. In fact, when one thinks of the traditional color white, it is composed of all of the colors in the color spectrum. If a pearl's most coveted characteristics is its luster (the mirror-like quality of a pearl), it is understandable how a white pearl with all the colors in the spectrum can be lustrous. Because black is the absence of light, one questions how a black pearl, devoid of light can be lustrous. The lip of the oyster where the pearl is formed is not unlike a rainbow displaying the full color spectrum in a narrow stripe bordering the oyster's rim. Each Tahitian pearl that is created borrows one or more colors from the color spectrum and refines it into a dark-based incandescent glow forming the body color and overtone of the black Tahitian pearl. Our black Tahitian pearl bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings demonstrate the unique beauty of the darkest pearls.
