Japanese Akoya Pendants Buying Tips

Value Factors For Japanese Akoya Pearls


Japanese Akoya pearls are flawlessly round because they are nucleated. The quality of their surface is much better than that of Freshwater pearls, which makes them considerably more valuable.


Japanese Akoya pearls also display a far more sophisticated luster than Freshwater pearls. While the price might be higher for Akoya pearls, the difference in quality well justifies the investment.

Surface Quality

Due to their superior luster, blemishes on the surface of Japanese Akoya pearls will be extremely difficult to identify.

Japanese Akoya pendants look refined and distinguished. The ideal accessory for an elegant outfit, this type of pearl pendant is easy to wear and accessorize.

  1. Stringing Type

Japanese Akoya pendants are set in three different types of metal.

Sterling Silver

If you are looking for an affordable pearl piece of jewelry that you can wear on a daily basis, we recommend a Japanese Akoya pearl set in sterling silver. The touch metal ensures you get a lot of wear out of this item. The subtle colors make it easy to accessorize and a great match for most skin tones. Sterling silver is also a great option for young pearl wearers who gravitate towards relaxed, simple outfits.

Yellow Gold

More mature ladies will prefer a yellow gold stringing for their Japanese Akoya pearl pendant. The gorgeous metal looks beautiful against fair and medium complexions with cool undertones. The contrast between the colder white or black gemstone and warmer gold creates an elegant accessory that is perfect for daytime and evening wear.

White Gold

Reserved for special occasions or formal meetings, white gold Japanese Akoya pendants look sophisticated and distinguished. If you are looking for a professional looking jewelry item, the pearl and white gold combination will help you polish off pantsuit outfits in a second.

  1. Pearl Color

Besides personal preferences, also consider your skin tone before choosing your pearl color.

White Japanese Akoya pearls with cool overtones will look beautiful on dark skin tones, enhancing dark eyes and dark hair.

Black Japanese Akoya pearl pendants are the best choice for fair complexions with warm or cool undertones.
