Luxury Pearl Necklace
This masterpiece displays Cultured South Sea, Tahitian, and White South Sea Pearls. South Sea pearls are the rarest of pearls and simply spectacular with a unique satiny luster, as well as an array of colors considered more unusual in other types of pearls and are typically white, silver and golden. Cultivated in the white-lipped oyster, larger than the oysters used to produce Akoyas and Freshwater pearls, the size of pearl they produce is considerably larger, reaching sizes as large as 15mm.
White-lipped oysters are rare, sensitive and difficult to cultivate, making the pearls they produce more expensive and highly desirable.
Enchanting and mysterious, Tahitian pearls are unique unto themselves due to their natural dark colors: metallic silver, to the color of graphite. Within this range of colors, they can have bluish, purplish, or greenish overtones.
Found in the waters off of the islands of French Polynesia, the natural black color of Tahitian pearls comes from the color of the oyster’s black lips. They are much larger than average oysters and are extremely sensitive to the cultivation process. This makes the large pearls they produce extremely valuable and sought after.
The necklace is unique in that the center pearl is set on a threaded post, so it is can be changed depending on your wardrobe with your choice of the three types of pearls – Tahitian Black, Golden South Sea or one White South Sea Pearl.
The pearls range in size from 13.5mm to 9.7mm diameter.
