The Black Pearl may have been a ship in a movie but the black pearls in a black pearl necklace come from the South pacific islands and are often called South Sea Pearls or Tahitian Pearls.
They can look quite splendid especially in a tastefully made black pearl necklace which shows off the skin tone and the dress. A black pearl necklace is the basic black of jewelry and will go with most designs and fashions.
When looking for a black pearl necklace there are some things to keep in mind.
Black pearls come in a range of sizes as well as qualities. The size, quantity and quality will depend largely on your budget. The more you can spend the bigger and more pearls you can get for the necklace. However you may not want large pearls of course. The shape and thickness of the neck is important so that you pick the size that is right for you. If one’s neck is on the thin size too big pearls will emphasis the thinness of the neck. While too small a set of pearls on a thicker neck will look tiny and out of place.
Also when you are inspecting the necklace, check that the pearls are uniform in color, luster and size. There should be no uneven pearls and all should be the same shape, either round or perhaps slightly oval in some cases.
The luster should be good and you should also get a certificate to state the pearls are genuine and not fake.
Black pearls are among the most expensive and so you should choose with care for the money you are paying.

It is important that you do some due diligence and some window shopping before you make a decision. Do not just buy the first black pearl necklace that is shown to you.
Keeping in mind the above points will help you to get a black pearl necklace which is long lasting and suites you to a T.
