Hanadama akoya pearls come from a special category of pearls. While there is no recognized international standard for grading akoya pearls, every harvest produces pearls that are considered special, and these pearls are separated from all others and treated differently. These pearls are referred to as hanadama. They are reserved as the very best of the harvest. But even within this category, there is always a quality range.
For decades we have been working with the same family-run farms in Japan. These families understand our rigorous standards and select hanadama pearls specifically for us. They ensure these pearls are only the top range of the hanadama category.
Once the hanadama pearls are selected, they are imported and graded once again by our Chief Creative Officer, Hisano. She examines every strand and every pearl to ensure the quality is always the same. She rejects any pearls that do not fall within the highest hanadama range. This is something you will recognize the moment you open the box. These pearls will take your breath away.
Accompanying your strand of pearls is be a uniquely numbered and laminated pearl quality report prepared by the Pearl Science Laboratory of Japan, which describes in detail the beauty and perfection of your hanadama akoya pearl necklace.
