Tahitian pearls are prized for their unique colors— dark, smoky shades of grey and peacock with a beguiling iridescent glow. They are the glorious handiwork of the enormous Pinctada margaritifera oyster, commonly known as the black-lip pearl oyster. Attaining perfectly-shaped, perfectly smooth pearls from these oysters is hit or miss. But when this oyster comes through we can guarantee you those pearls will be prohibitively expensive.
We decided to give this hardworking mollusk a break, and you a tremendous price break. The Pacifica Earrings features exquisite beads inspired by the Tahitian pearls of the black-lip pearl oyster, but with a price that’s far more affordable. The seductive beads are crafted from the best part of the pearl–– the nacre–– the prized iridescent organic material found in cultured pearls.
We’ve added shimmering beads in cream to lend a classic touch. She’ll love the classic yet exotic allure of these pieces, you’ll love the classic price. The pinctada margaritifera oyster will love the time off.
