About Tahitian Pearls

You used to wear only pearly white jewelry until you discovered the allure of colored pearls. Among naturally colored, cultured pearls, the Tahitian pearl stands out as a black beauty. This Tahitian gem is formed from black-lipped oysters, but it is actually not all black. Its dark shade ranges from graphite black to dark grey with undertones and overtones of green, silver, blue, pink, purple, and yellow. Besides the usual round shape of pearls, Tahitian gems are also available in oval, teardrop, button, and baroque shapes. A Tahitian pearl necklace can be made of pearls of slightly varied dark shades or a gem of the same dark shade. The dark colors are best complemented with strands made from gold or sterling silver. Such a necklace would look great with your light-colored outfits, especially when matched with a pair of Tahitian pearl earrings. With the wide selection of luxury pearl jewelries offered by reliable sellers on eBay, you can easily find the perfect Tahitian pearl jewelry sets to cut an elegant and exotic figure.
