Saltwater Tahitian Pearl Post Harvest Processing
Tahitian pearl jewelry is not generally as matched as many of their counterparts i.e. Saltwater Akoya Pearls or Saltwater South Sea Pearls. It is not uncommon to find baroque, or semi-baroque shaped pearls in beautiful Black Tahitian pearl necklaces. The uniquely shaped Tahitian pearl is used for many other types of Pearl Jewelry such as pendants, earrings, bracelets, and rings.
Necklaces made of round Black Tahitian pearls are quite rare and valuable. Prices for these pearl necklaces retail and appraise in the tens of thousands of dollars. Therefore, as long as the surface of the Tahitian pearl is smooth, then the pearl is usually used for some sort of pearl jewelry, and can be found on the market somewhere in the world.
