Jewelry made with Akoya cultured pearls is classic, popular and beautiful. These pearls are perfect in strands, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The Akoya pearl was first cultured in Japanese pearl farms in the early part of the 20th Century, and any piece of jewelry is complemented with its rich, white color and rose overtone.
Most often jewelry made with these pearls are set with 18k gold posts and clasps, which highlights their beautiful luster. While they may seem similar to other freshwater pearls, when compared directly, the difference is striking. The Akoya is larger, more smooth, a bit rounder and more lustrous.
