Tahitian Black Pearls - About

Black Pearls from Tahiti

Tahitian Black Pearls
Tahitian Black Pearls

The Tahitian cultured pearl, commonly called black pearls or Tahitian pearls, comes from the shimmering lagoons surrounding the seductive islands of Tahiti, French Polynesia. The metallic colors of black pearls are dark and bewitching: black, gray, green, blue, aubergine. Tahitian pearls are generally 8-16 millimeters in size and are rarely perfectly round.


We cover how to buy black pearls in great detail in our Pearl Buying Guide.


Also, please see our special blog post on Tahitian Black Pearls and What to Look For When Shopping.


Pearl color and pearl luster tend to be the most important qualities in judging black pearls; their unusual pearl shapes and dramatic tones lend a mystical element that bespeaks the magical waters from which they came. A AAA Tahitian black pearl is arresting; they bring glamor and allure to any pearl collection. 

Tahitian Black Pearls are one of most popular pearl types today. The wide range of colors cater to individual taste. While no single pearl color is "best" or most valuable (although "peacock green" is in high demand!), high luster pearls are always more valuable pearls.


Black pearls also tend to cost more than Akoya Cultured Pearls from Japan and Freshwater Pearls from China, but are usually less expensive than the South Sea Pearls from Australia, or the Golden Pearls of Indonesia and the Philippines.
