About Cultured Tahitian Pearls

The inky, iridescent color pearls get from the black-lipped mantels and donor tissues imbued by trained technicians give cultured Tahitian pearls their uniqueness.

Pearl mollusks are placed in secluded nets at sea. The mollusks are regularly checked on. About five years later, they are fished out by technicians known as pearl farmers.

Each mollusk is opened. A pearl may have formed in the mollusk. Long tweezers are used to extract the pearl. The pearl is then scrutinized and graded using various tools.

You may decide to skip the pearl farms and go to a local pearl jeweler instead. Make sure to inquire about the surface flaw percentage. Also, ensure you leave with a certificate of authenticity. This certifies that your gemstones are real cultured pearls.
