Tahitian Pearls,queen of Gems, Queen of Pearls

By: Patrick E Cavanaugh

When Oro, the Polynesian god of peace and fertility, came down to earth to find a mortal wife, he traveled the rainbow where one end was in the sky and the other on the earth.

At the moment Oro walked along the rainbow using it as his pathway, bits of color fell from the rainbow, mingled with the moonlight, and fell into the sea as tahitian black pearls.

But there is even more ancient legends handed down from one Polynesian generation to the next on the creation of black pearls. According to one of those legends, Oro, the Polynesian god of peace and fertility, came down to earth on a rainbow to offer a special type of Tahitian pearl oyster to man.

Another legend tells of the origin of Tahitian pearls, according to this legend, when Oro decided to marry, he created a rainbow between the heavens and the earth and traveled across it where he offered BlackTahitian Pearls to the beautiful princess of Bora Bora as a sign of his love.

Just imagine, the most romantic legend tells how the moon shines its light upon the ocean to attract the oysters to the surface where it impregnates them with heavenly dew.
Polished by time, this drop of light holds this heavenly radiance within its heart and cloaks itself in a garment that glistened with the blue, green, pink and golden colors of all the fish that swim.

Just think, for centuries before contact with Western civilization, Black Tahitian Pearls were revered for their beauty and rarity. Always associated with love.
Black Tahitian Pearls, seemingly created by magic in the turquoise waters of the Polynesian Islands, have a mystique that is difficult to define with words.
These myths tell of the love and admiration that people have for the 'Queen of Pearls'.

Tahitian Pearl Jewelry is black, green, silver, aqua, pistachio, purple, peacock green, gunmetal gray all over, or as the ancients say created from a mixture of a rainbow and moonlight.
Like all the colors of the fish that swim in aqua colored tropical waters.

Bold, exotic, mysterious iridescent Tahitian Pearls are the most dramatic and beautiful of all the Pearls.

A gift of Tahitian Pearl Jewelry is a gift that will be remembered forever.

Oh wait, I almost forgot.

Don't forget where they came from!
