Have you ever been out and caught a glimpse of your reflection in a window or a mirror? When you wear this set of pearls, you'll start doing a double take. In every light, they will appear to glow. There is nothing else quite like the deep luster in a set of top-graded, extra-fine hanadama akoya pearls.
There is a quality range within hanadama standards, and this set is composed of top-graded hanadama 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 hanadama 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 very important because 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 in this necklace and earrings set measure 7.5-8.0 mm - a classic size. The necklace contains individually knotted pearls on twin silk, and is finished with a sold gold safety clasp. At 18 inches, it will most often sit just below your collar bone. The earrings are set on solid gold posts with secure friction backs holding them safely on your ears.
Accompanying your set 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 pearls.
