Where Do Your Tahitian Pearls Come From?

Matching and Grading Loose Tahitian Pearls

Glad you asked! Come read about one of Kevin's Tahitian pearl adventures ...

"I know a farmer in Tuamotus that has some big lots. They’re graded, inspected and ready for export. But can’t promise anything. I'm pretty sure he's waitin' on auction”

That’s all I needed to hear.

Several late night skype calls, some tough negotiating, and over $200,000 in “single-origin” loose Tahitian pearls were in my office for final approval.

Some pearls didn't make the cut, but the vast majority were:

  • AA – AAA quality
  • A Wide range of colors
  • Had shapes ranging from round to baroque
  • Govt. certified .8mm+ nacre thickness.
  • All in all a fantastic mixed lot of pearls.

So I’ve been chained to my work bench. Sorting, matching, drilling and preparing strands for sale ...

Featured Pearls of Joy Product Spotlight: Silver and Cherry 18" Round Tahitian Pearl Necklace

 

18" Round Tahitian Pearl Necklace: 9.1-11.3mm AA+

 

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, our Tahitian pearls spend quality time in the water acquiring thicker nacre and more saturated colors. The extra time in the oyster is what gives these pearls exceptionally thick nacre and a deep three-dimensional luster.

This strand is pale silver in color, with bright rose overtones, very high luster and some light blemishes. This strand is a unique one-of-a-kind necklace.
