Akoya Pearls—The Heart of the Sea
Known as the original cultured pearl, the Akoya pearl is a saltwater cultured pearl from the Akoya oyster (Pinctada fucata martensii) which is the smallest pearl producer known in the oyster family. Akoya pearls come in blue, green, pink, rose, cream, white, silver, and gold. They are considered the classic pearl choice for pearl necklaces, pearl earrings, pearl rings, and pearl earrings amongst retailers and consumers because of their almost perfect round shape and bright mirror-like luster and can suite the taste and style of any occasion because they can be worn chic, elegant or in a casual setting. However, aside from being consistently round, they can also have a semi-round, baroque, and semi-baroque shape.
Akoya pearls are produced in China and in Japan and can take up to two years to cultivate. The average size of Akoya pearls range from as tiny as 2 mm to 9.5 mm. All sizes can be used for jewelry purposes, but Avital & Co., located in the heart of the world famous Diamond District in New York City (NYC), recommends using 5 -8 mm sized pearls in pearl necklaces.
