The Wide World of Pearls, Our 40th Issue: 🎆 This 4th, we’re Exploding
A colorful tribute to the fireworks for this 4th of July, we thought we’d post these AMAZING pearls.
Spotted at a recent trip to Hong Kong, we found these 12-13mm bead nucleated Freshwater drops with crazy dark colors, not just one color, but multiple bands of color.
I’ve seen this sort of banding on the odd pearl before, but never quite this intense or on this many pearls. After seeing these I have to think that true natural “black” freshwater pearls may be coming down the pipe. Maybe not dark Tahitian greens, but dark reds and purples seem inevitable.

18″ Drop Tahitian Pearl Necklace: 8.5-10.5mm AAA
These exotic Tahitian pearls hail from the warm tropical atolls of Tuamotu and Gambier Islands, part of French Polynesia. Each pearl in this strand was grown for at least two seasons (minimum of 18-24 months). While most “discount” strands are only grown one season. The extra time in the water is what gives these pearls exceptionally thick nacre and a deep three-dimensional luster.
Because of our founder’s direct contacts in French Polynesia, we’re able to offer this strand of pearls for 1/5th the price of traditional luxury retailers — without sacrificing quality, luster or color.
This strand is a Multi-Color Tahitian, with a mix of light and dark body colors with silver-blue, silver, rose, dark blue-green and peacock overtones. The pearls have high luster and very light blemishes.
