Thaitian Multicolor Pearl Necklaces of Superior Quality

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Aloha Pearls has one of the largest selections of pearls in Hawaii. They carry Freshwater, saltwater, Akoya and South Sea but our crown jewels are our Tahitian pearls. Tahitian pearls are unlike any other pearls and the first time you see one, you will know why.

One of the characteristics that set Tahitian pearls apart from the others is where they are grow. Tahitian pearls originally were farmed in French Polynesia and gained popularity in the Pacific Islands, including Hawaii. These pearls are still only grown in a couple parts of the world and their charm has spread worldwide. Tahiitian pearls are popular among both island men and woman. The main reason these pearls are so loved, is the beautiful colors they come in. Though Tahitian pearls are considered “Black” pearls, their tones spread vastly across the color wheel. Perhaps the most popular color for these pearls is the peacock color because it is so different from anything ever seen. Tahitian pearls have also come in purple, silver, blue, gray, green and many colors in between. Although Tahitian pearls may appear to be one color upon first glance, overlying tones can easily make them seem an entirely different color the next time they are seen. These pearls also take on the tones of clothing that they are worn with.

Another great thing about Tahitian pearls is the sizes they come in . These pearls are larger than all but one type of pearl. Sizes for these pearls range from 8 mm to about 17mm. However, there are exceptions to this and smaller, Keshi pearls can also be found as well as the occasional 20mm pearl.

At Akoya Pearls , the quality of Tahitian pearls will astound you. Vibrant Tahitian strands in every color stroke our shelves gracefully, catching the light and creating luminous colors. For the largest selection and most affordable prices choose for the most luxurious Tahitian strands.

Black Freshwater Pearls

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

If there’s a gem that has a permanent place in a world of timeless glamour, it will be the pearl.  Pearls are the irregularly shaped to round beads that form from the secretions of mollusks.  This happens as a reaction of the mollusk when a foreign particle enters it.  The foreign particle is coated by the secretion over and over.  Once it hardens, a pearl is formed.  Pearls are shiny formations that come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on the kind of mollusk that formed it.

Generally, there are two kinds of pearls based on the way they are formed.  It can be a freshwater pearl or it can be the saltwater pearl.  Freshwater pearls are those formed by mollusks (specifically mussels) that thrive in freshwater.  On the other hand, saltwater pearls are formed by oysters found in saltwater.

Freshwater pearls, as mentioned earlier, are produced by freshwater mussels.  Specifically put, the mussels that produce the freshwater pearls belong to the family Uniondae.  These kinds of mussels are found in bodies of freshwater such as ponds, lakes and rivers.  Freshwater pearls are mostly made in China as culturing it is a common practice. 

Today, the culturing of freshwater pearls made the availability of pearls in the market higher. However, the situation is not the same with black freshwater pearls.  Black pearls are harder to culture due to the sensitivity of the mollusk that creates it.  Though the culturing of black pearls is not impossible, it is still difficult.
