The largest island in the Windward group of French Polynesia in the southern Pacific Ocean, Tahiti has become a top travel destination in recent years. And how could it not? Blissful sunsets over crystal clear waters and picturesque landscapes rank pretty high on most anyone’s list of a dream retreat.
The natural beauty cultivated from Tahiti extends beyond panoramic views and into the world of jewelry as well. Popular for its exquisite beauty and attention-grabbing hues, Tahitian pearls are organic gems formed from the black lip oyster. The highlight of many jewelry collections, the Tahitian pearl have become French Polynesia’s largest trade, comprising over 55 percent of the country’s annual exports.
More than a few of these lustrous pearls have found their way into the stylish designs of Tamara Comolli. A firm believer that the right jewelry can serve as a form of personal expression, Comolli creates fine jewelry for her eponymous brand that exudes casual luxury and sophistication.
Though different in design, the four pieces from the Tamara Comilli collection below capture the essence of the natural beauty found in the Tahitian pearl and its point of origin.
