Wally asked me what I think about black pearls?

Well, Wally black pearls are beautiful, but there are some things you should know about them before you set out to buy some.  For one thing natural black Akoya, and freshwater pearls do not exist so in all cases these will be color treated by the dye.  Tahitian pearls come from the Black Lip oyster only.  You can spot a color-treated pearl by looking down the drill hole and seeing if there is any accumulation of dye.
