More about Black Tahitian Pearls

Black pearls have been admired and sought after, fought for, and cultivated in some form or another in the Polynesian islands for literally thousands of years...

Now, as was true in the past, these rare and beautiful pearls continue to be in high demand.
 Myths & Pearl Legends:

In Polynesian culture, the pearl has always been synonymous with purity and power. Legends passed down over the centuries tell the story of the relationship between the pearl and mankind in the mythical paradise known as Tahiti. Polynesian atoll

In fact, long before Western man even discovered that Tahiti existed, the black pearl had a reputation for exceptional value and rarity that was only enhanced by its use in the jewelry of the world's royalty and nobility.

The result was that the natural black pearl became known as the "pearl of queens" and the "queen of pearls", its wonder inspiring many questions among many people many centuries ago...

As history suggests, their lack of scientific precision perhaps led them to improvise with legend and poetry.
Many Imaginative Pearl Legends

Thus, the ancient Chinese believed that pearls were conceived in the brains of dragons. In imperial China, the natural black pearl was regarded as a symbol of wisdom. As such, it was guarded between the teeth of a dragon, which had to be slain before the pearl could be taken.

 The Greeks and Romans thought pearls were born in oysters as a result of a drop of rain or dew having penetrated between the layers. The Persians thought the same, but they believed that if a pearl was imperfect it was due to thunder in the sky. A more colorful version says pearls are born from the meeting of a rainbow with the earth.
Pearls Came from Angels' Tears in the Orient

In the Orient, pearls are sometimes associated with the tears of angels, mermaids or mythical nymphs in stories mixing pain and suffering with bliss. A Ceylon legend tells how the tears of Adam and Eve created a lake that gave birth to pearls --white or pink pearls from Eve's tears, and more precious and rare gray and black pearls from Adam's tears. Why the difference? Man knows better how to control his emotions, according to the legend.

There have been many ancient legends handed down from one Polynesian generation to the next on the creation of black pearls. According to one of those legends, Oro, the Polynesian god of peace and fertility, came down to earth on a rainbow to offer a special type of pearl oyster to man.


PRECIOUS METALS

The usual concept is that jewelry makers select the Precious Metal they use in their jewelry based on price or color design, but there is a third reason that is just as important. The third reason pertains to how well the wearers’ body will tolerate the exposure to that metal.

Precious metals are considered to be non-reactive metals (easily tolerated) that is why dentists and surgeons use them. But not all people can wear them without a problem. Those people who can’t tolerate them can get dark metallic stains on their skin, plus a nasty rash or other allergic reactions. This is most true with precious metal alloys, such as Karat Gold and Sterling Silver. These alloys are created by adding other metals (many are reactive) to a precious metal to strengthen it and/or lower its’ costs. On many occasions, the wearer can tolerate the actual precious metal, but they can’t tolerate the other metals in the alloy. For example, higher karat Gold can be more easily tolerated because it has less reactive metals than their lower karat cousins.
I friend of mine in Arizona creates beautiful beaded jewelry, but she can’t wear any of her creations. Like a number of other people, her perspiration eats right through the solid Gold layer in Gold Fill, and it pits all solid Gold and Silver alloys. In order to wear and demonstrate her own creations, she must make special, limited edition, 24 karat Gold versions of her jewelry. Otherwise she will end up with a dark stain and rash anywhere the Gold or Silver alloy touches her skin.

THE ALLOYS OF GOLD

Gold is usually alloyed for three reasons. The first is to strengthen it. Gold is a very soft metal, so by alloying it with other metals it gains strength. The second is to produce gold in different colors, such as yellow, white, rose, green, etc. The different colors of Gold are produced by the addition of specific metals, in differing proportions, to the Gold alloy. The third is to lower the cost of the precious metal.

These alloys of gold are designated by the term “Karat.” Pure Gold (100%) has 24 karats, or 24/24 parts gold. The karat number is based on the percentage of Gold in the alloy, but the specific metals in the alloy aren’t important. The most common metals found in karat Gold alloys are Silver; Copper; Nickel, and Iron, but almost any other metal can be used. Below are examples of karat Gold alloys:

10 karat Gold is 41.67% pure Gold & 58.33% “other metals” (primarily copper, some Silver, and probably Zinc.
14 karat Gold is 58.33% pure Gold & 41.67% “other metals”
18 karat Gold is 75% pure Gold & 25% “other metals”

As you can see, the lower karat gold alloys have greater percentages of “other metals” in their mix. These “other metals” in the alloy can react to pollutants in the air and environment at a much greater rate than the higher karat alloys. For example, the higher percentages of Copper, Silver, and other non-gold metals in the mix, can oxidize (tarnish) and/or corrode, especially during hot weather when those metals react to the salt and acids in perspiration.

As I stated earlier, some people cannot tolerate these “other metals” and “can get dark metallic stains on their skin, plus a nasty rash or other allergic reactions.” Also, people who have problems when wearing silver jewelry will usually have problems when they wear low karat, or white gold, too. The “whitening” metal added to the white gold alloy is usually nickel, and nickel allergies are the most common among the metals. In reality, White Gold isn’t white. It is a pale gold color and must be plated with Rhodium to appear “white”. Very soon, a new truly white Gold alloy, named “Great White” should be available.
