A Midnight Pearl – The Mystical Black Pearl

Black Pearls are the second most popular pearl on the market as well as one of the newest.  Known for prosperity, good luck and fortune, this mystical pearl is continually sought after.   The history of the Black Pearl is rooted in French Polynesian culture and was first seen with the Tahitian Pearl.

While Black Pearls are more common today, thanks to dye techniques, there was a time when these highly valued gemstones were rare.  Now, they are much more available at affordable prices.

Although Black Pearls are largely associated with being Tahitian Pearls, there are two other types.  Black Freshwater Pearls and Black Akoya Pearls.
