Each black-lipped oyster will only create one or two Tahitian pearls in its lifetime.The Tahitian pearls we use are hand-selected for their deep, rich, natural colours. They are produced in black-lipped oysters, therefore the natural shades of the pearls are dark. Colours range from grey and black to peacock green and aubergine. Occasionally lighter pearls are produced - white, yellow and pink (all with grey overtones). They are found in French Polynesia, Panama and Mexico.
