South Sea Pearls

Considered the most beautiful pearls in the world

South Sea pearls have several distinct characteristics that are unique to this gem. The nacre is unusually thick, ranging from 2 - 6 mm, compared to the 0.35 - 0.7 mm of an akoya pearl. South Sea pearls have a unique, satiny luster that comes from the rapidly deposited nacre and warm waters of the South Seas. South Sea pearls also have a subtle array of colors; typically white, silver, and golden, that are rare in other pearl types.

Tahitian pearls are produced in a oysters in and around Tahiti and the French Polynesian islands. This oyster itself is quite large, generally over 12 inches across and weighing as much as 10 pounds. This often results in much larger-than-average pearls. The pearls are unique because of their natural dark colors with hints of silver, charcoal, and green.
