Uniqueness of Pearl Jewelry

When you are talking about Black Pearls and Black Pearl earrings, you can just imagine the exotic and luxury that one of these sets of earrings can bring to a person that has a set of these particular earrings. What are black pearls, precisely, you may wonder? Black pearls are cultured pearls that have been artificially inserted into a pearl bearing oyster. They can be black in color. One of the most famous of the black pearls is called Black Tahitian Pearls. These are highly valued because of the rarity of the pearls themselves. These pearls can also be found in the oyster form.

These pearls can be made into any number of different black pearl earrings. They can also be created from either freshwater pearls or saltwater pearls. Besides the Tahitian black pearls, there are others such as the Mikimoto, Akoya and Honora. These are just some of the names that come up when you mention this type of pearl earrings. Now if you are looking for earrings with these fabulous pearl earrings, there are several styles and designs that may catch your fancy and look good as well on you.

Some of these black pearl earrings are designed for post earrings and some for dangle earrings. There are even some that are clip on earrings that are for people that don't have pierced ears. A classic design for these earrings is to have one per earring, and that is indeed a very classic look. However, there are many other designs such as hoops, dangles and studs. Sometimes, these black pearls are also mixed with other jewels in the earring set, making an even bigger statement. There are also various metals such as silver and gold that are used in these earring sets.

You can purchase a set of black pearl earrings from your jeweler, or online through various auctions, and online stores. These types of earrings will vary by price and by the pearl that is used to create the earring set. Depending upon the type of pearl, such as freshwater or saltwater, the price may also be raised. Something else to consider is the color and luster of the pearls in question. Each of these contributes to the cost factor when purchasing these types of earrings, no matter where you get them from or who you may get them from.
