Natural black Tahitian pearls are among the most exquisite and prized pearls in the world. Formed within the exotic black-lipped oyster found in the waters around the islands and atolls of Tahiti, their fabulous colour in this glorious necklace is like the sea: rich, lustrous blue-black with tones of gunmetal, green, purple, blue and silver: they are bewitching in their beauty. The pearls are an excellent size, graduated from 10-12.5mm—large enough to make a statement yet comfortable with every- thing from evening dress to cashmere top. Each pearl in this stunning Tahitian black pearl necklace was chosen, strung and knotted by hand by our pearl jeweller in the South Seas. It is 18in long and finished with a 14ct gold clasp. Each strand is unique. Code BP21 CC04. RRP £4,000. CCUK £1,970.
