Japanese Cultured Akoya Pearl `The Graceful Art of the Highest Quality'
Akoya pearls take their name from Akoya oyster in which they form, which
live in the sea around the southern half of Japan. Cultivated Akoya oysters
are nucleated with a hard-shell bead and mantle it with nacre tissue, and
after 1-4 years later some oyshters make beautiful pearls . The survival
rates of host oysters is low, and less than only 5 percent are considered
valuable quality. We have selected from highest quality pearls for our
necklaces and accessories. Our standards of the pearl evaluation is very
strictl, but the pricesare less costly than in other countries. That is
because we are in Japan,and near the product center. Please check the pearl evaluation page.
