What are Akoya pearls? They are saltwater pearls cultivated from the Akoya oyster in parts of Japan and China. From Asian seas, the Akoya cultured pearl is favored for its roundness and beautiful luster. Famous for pinkish hues, these pearls flatter all skin tones with a luminous glow. No matter the occasion, an Akoya pearl necklace or pair of earrings is sure to add that touch of elegance you desire.
Akoya pearls' value is something jewelry collectors shouldn't ignore. Since an Akoya oyster can only produce a single pearl at a time, their rarity certainly contributes to their worth. However, since Akoya pearls are smaller than other saltwater varieties, they often come at a more attainable price. For this reason, yellow gold or white gold Akoya pearl jewelry is an ideal choice for any pearl lover. Discover Ross-Simons' collection of fine Akoya pearls today.
