Are you drawn to more of an exotic look in pearls? You're probably the type to break from the norm and these pearls may just be a perfect complement to your style and your personality.
Akoya pearls are known for their perfect round shape and unmistakable luster unique to akoya pearls grown in the cold coastal waters of Japan. The finest pearls from this region are known for their mirror-like luster and smooth surfaces – qualities you will clearly see the moment you open the box.
For more than a decade, we’ve imported akoya pearls from just two sources in Japan. This is the only way to guarantee the pearls have grown for two full seasons – a farming technique known as “koshimono.” This is important because it directly affects the nacre thickness, or the durability of your pearls. You want your pearls to last a lifetime, and you want to be able to pass them down from generation to generation. Two seasons of growth guarantees you will.
Each radiant 6.5-7.0 mm, perfectly round Japanese akoya pearl in this three-piece set is double-knotted on black silk and finished with a solid 14-karat gold clasp.
The necklace measures 18 inches in length, with your choice of bracelet length and matching stud earring. These pieces can be worn as an elegant set, or each alone.
As black is not a naturally occurring color in akoya pearls, the pearls have been treated with a permanent organic dye to achieve their dark coloration.
