The Tahitian pearl is the treasure of the islands of French Polynesia. She has earned its reputation and place in the most prestigious places of the world. The Tahitian pearl comes from a long and magical transformation orchestrated by the nature and the hand of man. Tahitian pearls are gems that will travel all through a world of magic and beauty, passionately.

(1) The standardization of the surface quality of the cultured pearls of Tahiti is :

Category A :
A pearl having at most one imperfection or a group of slight imperfections concentrated on a maximum of 10% of its surface. A beautiful luster.

Category B :
A pearl with slight imperfections concentrated on a maximum of 30% of its surface. Beautiful to medium luster.

Category C :
A pearl with slight imperfections concentrated on a maximum of 60% of its surface. Medium luster.

Category D :
A pearl having either slight imperfections over more than 60% of its surface, or slight and more serious imperfections on a maximum of 60% of its surface. Dull luster.

(2) The luster of pearls is the measure of the quantity and quality of light that is reflected from the surface of a bead or just below the surface of a bead. The luster of a pearl of good quality is sharp and bright. You should almost be able to see your reflection on the surface of a pearl. A pearl that appears too white, dull or limestone, is of low quality.

(3) The orient of a pearl is the way in which the prism of natural light breaks up in the depths of a pearl's aragonite layers. This iridescence gives the pearl all of the gloss that is modified by the colors, which range from white to black in tones of cream, pink, blue, peacock green, purple, and golden.
