Akoya Pearls

There are 4 distinct types of pearls in the world:

  1. Akoya Pearls
  2. Fresh water or cultured Pearls
  3. Tahitian Pearls
  4. South Sea Pearls

Here, we introduced our first collection; The Akoya Collection.

Renowned for their delicate colors and brilliant luster. Akoya pearls are created by the smallest pearl-making oysters in the world. Measuring no more than 6-8 cm in size, the Akoya oyster can be found in the calm waters of Japan, where the cool temperatures encourage a slower formation of nacre; resulting in a more compact structure, which gives the pearls their bright luster.

Akoya pearls were the first cultured pearls dating back to the late 19th century in Japan by the son of a noodle maker; Kokichi Mikimoto. Today, Akoya’s are the classic pearls used for necklaces and other pearl jewelry, with perfect round shapes, bright mirror-like luster, and neutral colors. Akoya pearls are favored by most as the classic pearl choice.
