The Akoya pearl is a saltwater cultured pearl from the Akoya oyster (Pinctada fucata martensii). Akoya are considered to be the classic pearl used for necklaces and other pearl jewellery, with perfect round shapes, bright mirror-like luster and neutral colours. The Akoya pearl is considered to be more rare and valuable than the freshwater pearl.
Akoya pearls are currently farmed in Japan, China and to a lesser extent, Vietnam, Thailand and Australia. The vast majority of the world's Akoya pearls are produced in Japan, which is the undisputed Akoya pearl producing centre of the world.
Studs have a 9ct Yellow Gold standard post and scroll fitting and come with a certificate of authenticity.
