Though it is called a Tahitian pearl it is also known as the “black pearl.” These gems are organically produced by the Black Lip Oyster. Why are pearls so valuable? Well for starters it takes an average of 2 years for an oyster to be mature enough to produce pearls. After the oysters have matured an expert grafter inserts a bead made of mollusk shell into the oyster’s gonad (reproductive system) and from there the oysters create a pearl. Depending on the tissue from the the oyster that it is placed it determines the color of the pearl. As of now we all know Tahitian pearls are from Tahiti. They are cultured in the farms of the blue lagoons of Tahiti.
