Akoya Pearls are among the most popular pearls that are worn by women today. Akoya Pearls have the advantage of being better priced than South Sea pearls, while being more visually appealing than Freshwater pearls. The high levels of luster and better culturing techniques used by pearl farmers in Japan, produce gorgeous pearls which have graced the necks, ears, fingers, and wrists of women for decades.

Laguna Pearl is a direct importer of Akoya pearls from Japan, where Akoya Pearls are produced in the Pinctada Fucata oyster in saltwater environments. Laguna Pearl only sells JAPANESE Akoya pearls, as oppose to lower quality Chinese Akoya pearls that have made there way into the pearl markets, especially through online stores. Since Laguna Pearl only offers the finest and highest quality products, we refuse to offer anything less to our customers. Despite the gross misconception by many online vendors that Chinese and Japanese Akoya pearls are equivalent, Japanese culturing techniques are the quintessential element to beautiful Akoya pearls. All of our Akoya Pearl Necklaces are made on site, and our extensive experience of GIA graduates pay careful attention to every detail.

Akoya Pearls range in size from as small as 4.0mm to as large as 10.0mm. Pearls below 7.0mm are considered small in size. Necklaces ranging from 7.0mm to 8.0mm are generally the more popular sizes, while anything above 8.0mm is considered to be more rare and valuable, especially in higher qualities. Laguna Pearl is proud to offer one of the most extensive Akoya Pearl collections on the internet. Furthermore, we are one of the only companies to have Akoya Pearl Necklaces that are sized at 9.5- 10.0mm in size, which are among the rarest Akoya pearls in the world!

Nacre thickness is an important factor when measuring a pearl's quality. Laguna Pearl is committed to offering pearls that consist of very thick nacre coatings. In truth, most governments set a minimum nacre thickness of 0.8mm to prevent low quality pearls from being exported from the country. Furthermore, all pearls are x-rayed and evaluated to ensure that they meet the strict nacre standards of their particular region. Therefore, all pearls on the retail market have already been approved of this standard. All pearls used by Laguna Pearl have undergone these inspections to ensure that they are of the highest quality.
