One of these items is our Black Pearl pendant, with a sterling silver chain. These black pearls come from islands down by Tahiti. They are Tahitian Black Pearls, but we have to call them South Seas Black pearls because they are not certified by Tahiti. We have acquired some of the oysters which make these pearls, (Black Lipped Oysters), and our black pearls come from these oysters. They are HUGE oysters, much bigger than the ones you see at other pearl kiosks. In fact, WE, are the only ones that have them here in Hawaii. (of course the pearl farms in the south seas have their own oysters at their farm shops.) Because these oysters are large, they can make larger pearls. In fact, we get black pearls from 10mm to 14mm out of our oysters. See a video of our oysters and your's truely, the Animation Professor, extracting a black pearl from a Black Lipped Oyster
This pendant item is made in Hawaii, includes a fine sterling silver chain18" chain. The black pearl is about 11mm to 13mm diameter. A perfectly smooth and perfectly round Tahitian Black pearl of 14mm would sell for $600 for one pearl! These pearls are not AAA quality, but they are still worth about $80 to $190 unmounted in a regular jewelry shop. But we are offering them as reward for a donation of much less here. (It would cost a few hundred thousand to set up a regular jewelry shop, but if we get a hundred thousand dollars, it is all going into our movie project.) A lovely Hawaiian gift for for you for your donation to help the Lost Island project.
