Tahitian pearls are often called “black pearls” because they are formed by unique species of a black lip oyster Pinctada Margaritifera Cumingi, but it doesn’t mean that they are all black color.
Tahitian pearls can vary from light to dark hues.
Pearl specialists distinguish:
Light pearls (silvery or creamy white)
Grey pearls (from light grey to dark grey)
Pastel pearls (green, pink or blue exquisite colors)
Dark (almost black)
Unique or so-called “Peacock” pearls glow like a rainbow and combine several different hues and overtones from green to purple.
Peacock pearls are usually priced higher than pearls of other colors as they are more difficult to find and they capture one’s eye by their refined luster and saturated color.
