Historically, pearls have been used as an adornment for centuries. They were one of the favorite gem materials of the Roman Empire; later in Tudor England, the 1500s were known as the pearl age. Pearls are unique as they are the only gems from living sea creatures and require no faceting or polishing to reveal their natural beauty. Tahitian pearls come in more exotic colors like silver, golden green, and gray-black. Often they have a metallic luster. They tend to be larger than Akoya and Freshwater pearls.
