The Pearl Source Comprehensive Guide to Buying an Akoya Pearl set

Akoya Pearls are the most abundant type of saltwater pearls on the market today. Jewellers commonly use this classic pearl type to create elegant pearl necklaces. In addition to classic necklaces, often a bridal favourite, Akoya Pearls are also used in the creation of other types of pearl jewellery. These high-quality pearls also look amazing when used with other gems in jewellery. Set them with white gold clasps or yellow gold posts, and you have a masterpiece that will last a lifetime.

The Luster of Akoya Pearls

There are very few blemishes on Akoya Pearls. Plus, their lustre is so fine, you feel like you’re looking into a convex mirror. The details these gemstones reflect will absolutely amaze you! These are fine pearls, meant to be worn at formal, upscale, and “nicer” events. They are classic pieces for the church, dinner parties, holidays, family gatherings and weddings.

The Shapes and Colors of Akoya Pearls

These classic gemstones generally come in perfectly round shapes. They feature neutral colours (white to grey, with pink, green, or silver overtones) and lustre so bright; it’s almost mirror-like. Culturing these gems is tedious, yet a safe process that takes place on pearl farms. Their oysters are nucleated using small pieces of mantle tissue and mother of pearl. So, the process is 100% safe for the oysters, as well as the environment. Because they come in perfectly round shapes, near-matching is rarely an issue with cultured Akoya Pearls. That means buying a strand of pearls will leave you with a virtually flawless piece of jewellery.

The Sizes of Akoya Pearls

Cultured Akoya Pearls come in a wide variety of sizes. Thanks to the art of cultivating Akoya Pearls, these gems can be found in sizes up to 11 millimetres large. Although most are round, they can also be found in Keshi and baroque shapes as well. Their neutral colours and rosé overtones make them perfect for the classic look. Akoya Pearls are adored by pearl lovers around the world. Visit our online pearl jewellery store and check out their eye-catching lustre and gorgeous hues today!
