Loaned for exhibit by American Pearl Company.

Black Beauty hails from the South American shores of the Caribbean or Equador, a region that has produced many fancy colored pearls. This well formed, button shaped natural pearl illustrates a blend of bright colors, orient, and high sheen, making it one of the finest natural black-colored pearls known.

The Black Beauty pearl weighs 6.5 carats.
