The best thing to bring home from Bora Bora is undoubtedly a black Tahitian pearl. Mysterious and silky, the black pearl has been cultivated in Bora Bora’s waters for 50 years. Shopping for the pearls is an experience unto itself; be sure to go to a reputable jewelry, though, as fakes abound. Pick a strand or choose your pearl individually and have it custom fitted to a drop or ring in a matter of hours. Men can also buy black pearls attached to cuff links as an elegant keepsake of their stay in this magical island. Be sure to have your pearl classified. Even the peacock pearls with their pink, blue and black hues are a perfect souvenir from one of the world’s most memorable getaways.
