Hanadama is a Japanese word coined by the originator of akoya pearl farming nearly 100 years ago. The word literally means “flower pearl” and was used it to describe a quality of pearl that goes above the normal range of “fine” into a range of grade all its own.
But over the years this range has grown and the space between “just making it” and “truly the best of the best” has also grown. This is unfortunate as it certainly isn’t what the originator coined the term to be. Hanadama should always mean the best of the best.
At Pearl Paradise, this is the standard we adhere to.
We really do hanadama differently. Nearly all our AA+ and 100% of our AAA quality pearls could pass hanadama certification, but we don’t submit them. We specifically source hanadama from only two producers in Japan and certify what we know is the best of the best, which is why we guarantee our hanadama to be finer than any others, online or off.
Because not all hanadama pearls are created equal.
Our commitment to quality, customer service, and unbeatable pricing and selection has helped us become the internet's premier source of pearl jewelry, with more than 100,000 satisfied customers to date.
