When you wear this perfectly matched set of hanadama akoya pearls, you will be wearing the finest pearls available today. There is no mistaking the shine, the glow and the beauty found only in the very best pearls. For so many, this is the Bucket List set of 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 a substantial 8.5-9.0 mm in size. The size is large for akoya, but not ostentatious. 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 perfectly matched stud earrings are set on solid gold posts and hold firmly to your ears with sturdy friction backs.
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.
