Pearls Black Market is committed to the principles of Fair Trade with producers, from whom we buy the pearls, as well as with our creative artisans of jewelry.
Fair Trade is part of the international strategy of sustainable development ensuring economic and social progress for producers of Tahitian pearls. Workers of Polynesian pearl farms are protected by strict labor laws, unlike many competing products generally imported from Asia often taken from sites ignoring working and environmental conditions.
A trading partnership, based on dialog, transparency and respect, whose objective is to achieve greater equity in world trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions and guaranteeing the rights of marginalized producers and workers in Tahiti.
In addition, production of Polynesian pearls allows native islanders to remain on their islands of origin and find a job and maintain resourceful communities.
Tahitian pearls are a true product of fair trade and sustainable development versus industrial produced fresh water pearls often artificially colored that are confusing the market and fooling the profane customers.
