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.

Everybody knows, what are the 4 Cs that define the value of a diamond: they are cut, color, carat and clarity. A similar classification is applied when grading pearls, but the criteria that affect the price are a bit more diverse.
The main criteria determining the value of a pearl are: size, shape, surface quality, luster and color.
Are pearls forever? Yes, they are if you follow some basic rules you can keep their luster last for generations.
Pearl is a gemstone of an organic origin. The fact that it’s born “in the wild” makes it a rather enduring material. However, for the same reason pearls require extra attention when it comes to cleaning, storage and everyday care.
