Sea of Cortez Pearls - The Other Black Pearls


Known as the "other" Black pearl, Sea of Cortez pearls are the Rarest Cultured Pearls in the World. 


There are less than 4,000 round and baroque pearls harvested each year. Now that may sound unimpressive, but you have to put that number in context to other pearl types to understand how small that actual amount is.

There are over 1,500 TONS of Freshwater pearls harvested each year. 

25 TONS of cultured saltwater Akoya pearls produced each year.

For Tahitian pearls, that figure is around 9 tons for yearly black pearl harvests.

Anyways, you get the idea – these pearls are RARE. Getting your hands on one – just one! – is akin to finding a jewelry quality pink conch pearl while fishing in the Caribbean.
