Akoya pearls, known for their golden hue, embody luxury and elegance. These pearls are cultivated in saltwater and possess a flawlessly round, smooth, and iridescent surface. Originating from Japan, Akoya pearls were historically bestowed upon distinguished individuals who displayed unwavering dedication to their responsibilities. These pearls were also believed to bestow divine blessings upon their owners, thus adorning emperors and high-ranking members of society.
Japan earned the title of "the land of Akoya pearls" due to the remarkable array of colors available in these pearls. Being saltwater cultured pearls, Akoya pearls naturally exhibit iridescence. The process involves the insertion of a small mother-of-pearl bead into an Akoya oyster, prompting the oyster's defense mechanism to coat the bead with nacre, forming the pearl. After 6 months to 2 years, the pearl is carefully extracted from the oyster. On average, Akoya pearls have a diameter ranging from 6 to 8 mm, exuding timeless beauty and sophistication.
