All cultured pearls have different variances of colors, sizes, and 
shapes that make them unique

 

Tahitian cultured pearls are best known for their diversity of size, shape and quality and their varying shapes of natural colors, ranging from pale gray to dark black, some even with rose, green and blue overtones.

The trade designation "Tahitian Cultured pearl" is reserved exclusively for cultured pearls obtained from the Pinctada Margaritifera pearl oyster, found in the lagoon of the atolls of French Polynesia.

In Tahiti, "Black Pearl"can only refer to a dark-colored pearl of natural color from the black-lip oyster (Pinctada Margaritifera). Dealers of pearls from Tahiti and the other islands of French Polynesia are now marketing their pearls as Tahitian Cultured Pearls or Tahitian South Sea Cultured Pearls: these two terms imply that the pearls are not dye.

At the producers' stage, quality evaluation is based solely on size, shape and quality. However, when Tahitian cultured pearls enter the wholesale trade, evaluation and pricing becomes based on the demand of the consumer, the rarity of the size, the shape and color of the pearl and the final destination of the pearl.
