Stop by the Musée de la Perle Robert Wan to learn about the pearls and the man who jumpstarted the industry in the ’60s. The museum will also give you some tips on how to ensure that you’re picking out an authentic black pearl. For one, look at the pearl’s depth of color; though black (or a shade of gray), it should show a certain iridescence. See more shopping picks in our Tahiti Travel Guide.
