For centuries the black pearl has captivated pearl collectors and treasure hunters alike. And up until recently a strand of exotic black pearls could fetch $150,000+. Thankfully today consumers have several options if they wish to wear these mysterious gems.
Technically there are three types of black pearls:
- Black Akoya Pearls (treated)
- Black Freshwater Pearls (treated)
- Black Tahitian Pearls* (naturally black)
Black Tahitian Pearls are the only natural black pearl.
