Tahitian pearls & diamonds
Tahitian pearl earrings with flawless Hearts & Arrows cut diamonds.
Tahitian pearl colours can vary from deep black, grey and white (from albino molluscs) to rare grass green. Our Tahitian pearl earrings are slightly oval and have a grey-green colour with a beautiful luster.
Like South Sea pearls, Tahitian pearls are saltwater pearls and are generally bigger than traditional Chinese freshwater pearls. The Tahitian pearl can also only be cultured one pearl at a time per mullosc.
Contrary to what the name might suggest, Tahiti isn’t the place where these pearls originate from. Tahitian pearls are produced in the coastal areas surrounding the French Polynesian islands.
The gold in the earrings is textured with a technique called reticulation. Reticulation permits us to create unique textures in gold. It takes a deft hand on the torch to get the desired results. With reticulation you can texture a surface of gold. It produces a ridged or ripply surface through controlled heating. The ridges of a reticulated surface are more pronounced than any other surface treatment. You can never get the same result twice, so a piece is always unique.
