Tahitian pearl drop
Tahitian pearl drop earrings.
The Tahitian pearls all have a different color and have a beautiful luster.
Tahitian pearl colours can vary from green, deep black, grey and white (from albino molluscs) to rare grass green.
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 textures in the gold are made by melting the gold. It takes a deft hand on the torch to get the desired results. It produces a ridged or ripply surface through controlled heating. The ridges are more pronounced than any other surface treatment. You can never get the same result twice, so a piece is always unique.
