Should a strand of Tahitian pearls be black to be valuable?

Although Tahitian cultured pearls are thought of as black most are shades of gray. Some are even copper-colored, pistachio green, or taupe. These unusual colors are popular, either alone or in mixed strands. What makes these pearls exceptional is their iridescent purple, green, turquoise, or pink orient.
