About Tahiti Pearls
Tahiti pearls are saltwater pearls and produced by black-lipped oysters called pinctada margaritifera. Tahiti pearls are also known as black pearls, but they are not actually black. They do have a dark color range, from deep green, blue, silver, to brown and purple. Tahiti pearls are the only natural “black” colored pearls. Black Akoya and Freshwater pearls are all dyed pearls. Tahiti pearls are large in size, comparing to Freshwater pearls and Akoya pearls. Another interesting fact about Tahiti pearls is that Tahiti pearls are not actually produced in Tahiti. They are mostly produced in French Polynesia: Tuamotu Archipelago and Gambier Islands.
