Akoya Pearl Pendants
In the early 1900s, entrepreneur Kokichi Mikimoto patented a technique for growing whole pearls in the akoya oyster. While this discovery was not his, he was the first to market these pearls to the world. Nearly 100 years later, cultured akoya pearls are still the most popular pearls in the world. An akoya pearl pendant offers the classic beauty of this timeless gem.
