Black pearls of Tahiti are indigenous to the remote islands of French Polynesia in the South Pacific. They are cultivated from the black-lipped huge oyster which are a foot or more in diameter. This oyster is very sensitive to the pearl culturing process, which makes the pearls very costly to produce. The beauty of Tahitian pearls lies on its unique mysterious black color and various overtones, among which, peacock green is the most valued color. The metallic lustre of Tahitian pearls are incomparable among pearls. A gift of Tahitian cultured pearls makes an extraordinary, unique gift.
