For the past several years we've sourced the finest, top-graded natural-white hanadama strands from the Kamimura family in Japan. This multigenerational pearling family is known throughout Japan for matching some of the finest natural-color hanadama strands on the market.
Although Akoya pearls are known to be classically white with a hint of rose, this is a look that is influenced post-harvest. In order to achieve this desired color, they are put through a process known as pinking. This is a universal process that nearly every Akoya pearl has gone through. The pearls Mr. Kamimura works with have skipped this process because they naturally exhibit the preferred color and orient treatments attempt to emulate.
Accompanying your strand of pearls is a uniquely numbered and laminated pearl quality report prepared by the Pearl Science Laboratory of Japan, which not only describes in detail the beauty and perfection of your pearls, it also states that there is no color treatment found.
