14k White Gold Huge Natural Gray Color Tahitian South Sea Pearl Strand Necklace
Natural color cultured Tahitian pearl measures approximately 10.2-10.7 mm, few blemishes expected in natural cultured pearls - absolutely gorgeous. The necklace is 16 1/4 long.
The ball clasp measures 12.25 mm in diameter. Stamped 585 on the clasp. Tahitian pearls are only harvested in French Polynesia. Dark Tahitian pearls are 100% naturally pigmented, free of artificial dyes. The color accumulates due to melanin production that darkens the pearl naturally as it forms within the shell. Tahitian pearls are the only black pearls, dark freshwater and Akoya pearls are artificially dyed. What is dark-colored freshwater or Akoya pearl? These are pearls artificially colored by nitrate of silver, as these pearls are always white in nature. If you examine them closely, you will see blotches of coagulated pigment on the surface indicating that the agent was used. Tinted dark pearls may appear intriguing, but they have nothing in common with genuine Tahitian pearls.
