Inspired by the exotic, naturally dark colours of Tahitian pearls, these statement necklaces are special pieces every woman needs. The Tahitian pearl shade in the By Fairfax & Roberts black pearl collection reflects tones of dark grey, silver and charcoal to represent the natural pearls found on the islands of French Polynesia.
How do black pearls get their colour?
Like a natural pearl, a black pearl secretes nacre in response to an irritation in the oyster. The layers of nacre build up to create the pearl. It is the internal colour of the oyster that ultimately determines the colour of the pearl. Natural black Tahitian pearls are produced by the black-lipped oyster in the islands of French Polynesia.
Contrastingly, black freshwater pearls are created by colouring a natural freshwater pearl to mimic the silvery-black tones of a natural black Tahitian pearl. This treatment ensures the freshwater pearl maintains its quality but ensuring the colour is enhanced.
