AAAA quality pearls represent only 2.5% of the annual pearl harvest and for good reason. Each pearl is a rarity in itself, representing the highest quality available anywhere. When it comes to South Sea pearls with the most variation and uniqueness in color, Tahitian South Sea black pearls win the prize by far. This pearl necklace certainly exemplifies the beauty of French Polynesia with a gorgeous variation of natural colors that symbolize the beauty of black pearls. Each black pearl is carefully hand-picked and matched according to the 'theme' of this pearl necklace. All black pearls are AAAA in quality with gorgeous overtones and 'Very High' grade luster, our highest grade available. Included with this item is a complementary pearl polishing cloth, giving you the ability to maintain this necklace's elegant beauty for years to come.
