The Allure of Tahitian Pearls
While the weather remains cool and we continue to look for ways to ‘elevate’ our everyday look with thoughtful touches, we’ve been drawn to the exotic colours and elegant sophistication of Tahitian black pearls.
What makes Tahitian Pearls special?
Along with the Australian and Philippine South Sea pearls which deliver striking white and gold coloured pearls, Tahitian pearls are among the largest and rarest of cultured pearls.
Tahitian black pearls are produced by the Pinctada margaritifera oyster, renowned for their rich range of colours from the dusky black to the magnificent, iridescent ‘peacock’.
Allure’s black pearls are natural in colour, with the Tahitian South Sea pearls sourced for our pearl jewellery internationally regarded as the finest and most prestigious in the world. They feature a distinctive lustre and superior strength, endowed by their thicker layers of nacre. When properly cared for, they will last many lifetimes.
Tahitian pearls have the ability to contain various undertones and overtones of yellow, silver, green, peacock and aubergine – or a unique combination of these hues. The range of Tahitian pearl colours, shapes and sizes available provide great versatility and flexibility to the jewellery that can be crafted using these stunning gems. Allure currently offers Tahitian pearls in 8mm – 18mm sizes.
Allure is pleased to have launched a range of new additions to the Tahitian pearl jewellery available online.
We’ve put together a number of looks to inspire your styling of our Tahitian pearls. Read below and discover the collection here.
Add elegance to a 9-5 look
A black pearl pendant can effortlessly add elegance and polish to your office look. The Tides of Tahiti Pendant features a single black pearl with highly sought-after green-grey tones which ascend to peacock and aubergine glowing through the layers of nacre. Stunning white diamonds complement and enhance the pearl’s natural lustre. A substantial pendant of this nature only needs a simple ring or two, such as the Tides of Tahiti Ring and Stackable Pearl Ring to balance the look.
Model wears: Tides of Tahiti Pendant, Tides of Tahiti Ring and Stackable Pearl Ring in Yellow Gold.
Refresh a favourite cocktail dress
A cocktail setting provides the perfect excuse to wear a stunning pearl strand, showcasing the exquisite colours of the South Sea in an array of vibrant hues. Both the To the Moon Keshi Strand and the Trinity Strand will make a statement and are sure to be conversation starters. Substantial strands are best styled with smaller accompanying pieces, such as the Peacock Groove Ring, Golden Light Pearl Bracelet and Articulated French Hook Pearl Earrings.
