Black pearls aren't just for pirates! Find the right black pearl for you in our selection of black cultured freshwater pearls. Choose from black potato pearls, rice ovals, keishi pearls, wire-hole pearls, coin pearls, tip-drilled pearls, and faceted pearls. Naturally (undyed) black pearls are only found near Tahiti and Australia, and are saltwater (oriental) pearls. So, like all freshwater black pearls on the market (and some saltwater black pearls on the market), our black freshwater pearls are dyed. In general, pearls are less durable than most gemstones and are sensitive to acids, dryness, and extreme humidity. Therefore, treat your black pearls with care. Be aware that the black color on dyed pearls may fade over time.
