Akoya pearls are known for their perfect round shape and intense 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.
The pearls measure an ungraduated 9.0-9.5 mm in size, which is within the largest range available in akoya. The pearls are strung to 16 inches - a wearable length that falls around the base of the neck. On a petite woman it will hang loosely around the neck falling at the collarbone. On a plus size woman, it may wear more like a choker. It's a beautiful length for this larger size akoya strand.
Every pearl is individually knotted on twin silk so the pearls never rub or scratch. The necklace is finished with a solid 14 karat clasp that features a safety hook so your pearls will always be safe.
