18 Inch Almost 8mm Akoya Cultured Pearl Necklace

The Akoya pearls on this lovely necklace are slightly baroque, and measure almost 8mm in diameter. They are much more cream in colour than a similar freshwater pearl necklace which tends to be white. This version of the necklace is the most popular length at 18 inches long. We have strung the pearls on silk thread, hand knotted in the traditional fashion and finished with a Sterling Silver fastener.

They are beautiful and fantastic value for money!

To help you choose - Akoya pearls, or oftern just called cultured pearls, come from salt water oysters rather than freshwater mussels. Most of the cultured pearls you will see will be spherical, with an even layer of nacre being laid down on the implanetd nucleus. Some however, are not even having some lumps and bumps on their surface, possibly also growing towards a teardrop or oval shape rather than round.

Although not quite perfectly round they do appear round when worn, and they still have the beautiful lustre and colour associated with cultured pearls.
