When you slip a 9.0-9.5 mm, top-graded hanadama akoya bracelet onto your wrist, your day will change. You will catch yourself staring, mesmerized by a luster and ever-changing play of subtle colors most never experience. This unmistakable beauty is only found in the finest, top-graded hanadama akoya pearls. You will fall in love.
There is a quality range within hanadama standards, and this bracelet 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 bracelet measure 9.0-9.5 mm, the largest size range typical for akoya pearls, but still conservative enough for everyday wear. Each pearl is individually knotted on twin silk, and the bracelet is finished with a solid 14 karat clasp.
Accompanying your pearls is 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 pearl bracelet.
The glow emanating from these pearls will be unmistakable - these are extra-fine akoya pearls. You will never want to take them off.
