Emerging once more from the clear waters of the Gulf of California, after decades of protection, is Mexico's most emblematic gem: 'New World Black Pearls'. In 1533, the Spanish Conqueror Hernan Cortez sent the very first expeditions into the area to find the mythical "Sea of Pearls". Soon, the area known as the "Vermillion Sea of Cortez" - officially known as the Gulf of California - produced some of the finest known pearls in the world: the Cortez Pearl?. These prized gems became New Spain's most important export product, with a price so high that their value was over double of that of all other combined exports to the Old Continent: gold, silver and spices. It was at this moment in time when Mexican black pearls came to be known as the "Queen of Gems and Gem of Queens", helping to adorn European nobility like never before. Back from a 400 year reign and near extinction, are a new generation of Cortez Pearls? being cultivated from the same highly priced oysters of Mexico. Own these exotic in nature and color, truly distinguishable from all the others. Cortez Pearls(R) -Discover here at Jewelry Television and jtv.com.

Review This Product
What a lovely color!This is truly one of the most beautiful pearls I have ever seen and how wonderful to own a piece in 18K gold. Not only do you rarely see Cortez pearls, the JTV price is less than other retailers (when you can find them.) May 27, 2014
