  • TAHITIAN PEARLS are grown in many locations in and around the south pacific. The pearl farm are located in the islands and atolls of French Polynesia, the Gambier, the Cook Islands and beyond. These naturally dark-colored pearls are produced from the large, black-lipped Pinctada margeratifera oyster. The large pearls this oyster produces range from deep black to light silver-grey boasting a myriad of overtones that include green, blue, purple and even peacock. The exotic nature of this sought-after gem has inspired artists, books and movies.



  • Although Tahitian pearls have been harvested for centuries, cultivation of these pearls is relatively recent. The first successful experimentation of culturing black pearls using the Pinctada margaratifira is reported to have been accomplished by Jean Domard in coordination with Pearls Pty Ltd., in 1963-64. Pearls Pty Ltd. already had an established pearl farm in Kuri Bay, Australia. According to reports, there were two operations conducted; seeding of oysters on Hikueru and then on Bora Bora. Two years later, the small pearl harvest was considered to be of reasonable quality. This led others to pursue more experiments, eventually culminating in successful pearling operations.


  • Even successful pearling operations are a risky affair. With a mortality rate of between 10% and 40% it’s not a simple venture to establish. Pearl farmers work hard to keep the oysters healthy with daily management and care. They will wait a long time to know if their hard work has brought them a successful harvest. As a Tahitian pearl farmer once said, “You really have to love what you are doing”.
