If you love the classic and elegant look of pearls, then chances are you
will fall in love with Akoya Pearls. These incredible pearls make for a
perfect addition to any woman’s pearl jewelry collection. Akoya Pearls are known for their beautiful shades and tones of white,
ivory, pale pink and silver blue. Some Akoya Pearls may appear to be
dark green, dark blue or even black. The Akoyas that come in these
darker shades have been color enhanced.
Akoya pearls are farmed in the beautiful waters off the coast of Japan, these little
beauties illuminate incredible luster and shine. Akoya pearl necklaces
are thought by many to be the “staple” in any pearl jewelry collection.
If you are looking for an elegant wedding, birthday or anniversary gift,
Akoya Pearls are perfect. A common mistake by many people is to refer
to Akoya Pearls as Mikimoto Pearls. Because of the branding of Mikimoto,
many people believe that Mikimoto is a type of pearl. This is
incorrect, Mikimoto is the name of a pearl jewelry company and their
inventory primarily consists of Akoya Pearls. At Seven Seas Pearls, our
Akoya Pearls come from the same farming waters as Mikimoto Akoya Pearls.
For generations, we have built relationships with the pearl farmers and
our office is located near the pearl farming waters. Our location in
Japan directly receives the pearl harvests and there our staff
meticulously sorts, drills and grades the pearls.
