Size:  79.7 KBHi there. Iím a new Tahitian pearl lover after recently buying a beautiful vintage pendant on eBay that came with its certificate (atoll of Manihini). It just said black/green and Iíd like to know its color designation, which looks to me like it has some deep purple and copper or Rose as well as green and black.

    The second part of my question has to do with the next Tahitian pearls I then bought, a pair of earrings which I bid on and ended up winning at about $160.Name:  image.jpg

    The earrings were described as Tahitian withName:  F024F730-5B65-4B44-B1FF-BAB5A1314A30.jpg

Size:  47.1 KB ďunusual NATURAL colorization of dark pistachio peacock nacre with coppery rose high luster, these genuine pearls measure 8 MM in size. ď
    These Iím not so sure of. When I saw the pendant there was a je ne said quoi that immediately said they are natural and genuine. The earrings to me Look more shiny or ďmirroredĒ than iridescent. Iíve taken lots of photos but none really are true to either pearl in terms of the colors. but I am posting both the pendant side-by-side with the earrings. Any thought on whether the earrings seem natural vs dyed? Thank you so much for giving me your time!

    The colors look natural to me. (Tahitian pearls are cultured.) Congratulations on your lovely new Tahitians!

    Welcome to the forum. What size are the pearl earrings? What is the metal? They seem round not button or flattened. I feel all three pieces are natural color cultured Tahitian pearls, very pretty. Pearls are notoriously difficult to photograph!
