South Sea pearls are rare and precious, they are grown in a giant oyster called Pinctada Maxima, they have record characteristics. Their size is greater than any other cultured pearl. They have a solid state of pearling, a characteristic that makes it lasting for generations. They are so precious and refined that they have been defined "Queens of Pearls, Pearls of Queens".
The Pinctada Maxima can reach 25 cm in diameter and weigh up to 5 kg. It is a very delicate mollusc that lives deep (100 meters) has a high mortality percentage up to 80% of the specimens.
The colors vary from white to cream to golden yellow. The most valuable are the so-called gold. The cultivation takes place by inserting a rigid mother-of-pearl core taken from a shell and a fragment of the epithelium of an oyster Pinctada Maxima into the mollusc gonad. The duration of cultivation varies from 20 to 24 months and the growth of the bud is about 2mm per year.
Tahitian pearls are produced by the black-lipped oyster Pinctada Margaritifera, in Tahiti and throughout the archipelago of French Polynesia. This oyster is large in size, it can reach, although in rare cases, 30 cm in length for a maximum weight of 5 kilos and can produce pearls from 8 to 16-17 mm. Tahitian pearls are very rare for their natural dark color, they are the only cultured pearls that are naturally dark, well known as black Tahitian pearls. In fact, the color of these pearls is never truly black, there are no truly black pearls in nature; Tahitian pearls have shades ranging from gray, silver, or shades ranging from green with fantastic reflections of peacock green, bronze, silver, pink, aubergine and others.
The most beautiful of the young oysters are carefully picked as soon as they reach 2 cm and then reared until adulthood in the crops.
