Find beautiful pearls in the ocean of darkness. Black pearls are unique and have many myths and legends surrounding them. The black pearls are formed in the black-lipped bivalve mollusk, the pearls that are formed near the inner shell get a darker color. Black pearls are found in the Tahitian and French Polynesian Islands, which is why they are also called Tahitian pearls. In the early ages, black pearls were only worn by royals and nobles, earning them the nicknames “queen of pearls” and “pearl of queens.” Even though black pearls are now cultivated, they are still rare.
