PEARLS

PEARLS Freshadama pearls are the world’s highest-quality freshwater pearls. When pearls are sold at a production level, they are separated into several different qualities. Most qualities are considered “necklace” quality. These pearls are sold as matched temporary strands. There is one quality, however, that is treated differently. These pearls are sold loose and undrilled individually. These are the pearls we use to create our freshadama line. Our line of freshadama pearl jewelry features truly round freshwater pearls with less than 5% deviation from perfect spheres. They exhibit the finest luster with virtually no blemishing or spotting. Every freshadama pearl necklace and freshadama pearl bracelet is finished with a solid, 14-karat Pearl Paradise charm. Our freshadama pearl earrings are set on medium-weight, 14-karat posts. Our freshadama pearl line has been featured on The Ellen DeGeneres and The Tyra Bank’s Show, as well as several industry publications including Pearl World Journal and Colored Stone Magazine.

Since the 1930’s, Akoya pearls are the world’s best-known pearl. Akoya pearls are often very round and spherical in shape and are complemented by very high luster. Produced by a small oyster called the Pinctada Fucata off the seas of Japan and China, they are commonly found in sizes ranging from 2mm to 10mm in size. Akoya pearls are a long-time favorite in the pearl industry and are commonly worn by brides on their wedding day.

The Classic Pearl For nearly 100 years, akoya pearls grown off the coast of Japan have been the classic pearl of choice. When one pictures a round strand of white pearls, they are usually thinking of akoya. Although rare baroque shapes and natural colors like silver-blue and gold do exist, akoya pearls are best known for their perfectly round shape and sharp, reflective luster. While exceptions do exist, most akoya pearls produced today range in sizes from 4 to 10 mm. If you are looking for a classic strand of round, white pearls, you are probably looking for a strand of akoya pearls. The Fashion-Forward Pearl The most affordable pearls sold today, freshwater pearls are known for baroque shapes, white and pastel body colors and softer luster than akoya (except in the case of rare metallics). With natural pastel colors and shapes that range from perfectly round to free-form baroque, freshwater pearls offer a widest range of options. Common sizes range from 5 mm to 12 mm, but recent advances have led to the development of round and baroque pearls as large as 20 mm.
