When you admire this double strand of akoya pearls in front of the mirror for the first time, one thing will be unmistakable - nothing quite compares to fine Japanese akoya pearls. You will look radiant wearing them.
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.
The pearls measure 7.0-7.5 mm, the most popular size in akoya pearls. The pearls are individually knotted on twin silk and the necklace is finished with a solid gold clasp with a safety catch. Your pearls will always be secure.
Accompanying your strand of pearls is a beautiful presentation box, a care kit with cleaning cloths and a certified appraisal.
This is the sort of necklace you will fall in love with.
