Hanadama is a Japanese word used to describe the best of the best in akoya pearls. The word literally translates to 'flower pearl' in Japanese. When a pearl farm harvests their crop in Japan, the first thing the farmers do is separate out all the truly exceptional pearls. These treasures are then kept separate and treated as a separate category to be sold to the finest of dealers and wholesalers.
