The beauty in this medium grey colored black Tahitian south sea cultured pearl necklaces lies in its unusual ringed shape, medium tone and green/peacock colored luster. Our experience has revealed that medium tones, high luster and that strong green overtone compliments fair skin and light eyes remarkably well. This necklace has a natural beachy look to it that lends itself well to casual wear. Rather than your perfectly round pearls that can cost so much more, ringed pearls are admired for their uniqueness. Remove the concentric rings that the oyster carved into the surface of these pearls and a similar necklace could fetch twice the price. As you can see from the magnified view above, the pearls are B Quality. The pearls' surface quality exhibit slight blemishing on more than 10% of their surface, but confined to no more than one-third. Cleaner pearls could run 30% more.
