Whether you are shopping for a gift or want to complete your collection with an Akoya Pearl Necklace, a pair of Akoya Pearl Earrings, or an Akoya Pearl Bracelet, Laguna Pearl offers exquisite ranges of jewelry in the finest finishes.

Akoya Pearl Colors and Shapes

Akoya pearl oysters are the smallest type of commercially farmed oysters, and unlike Freshwater Pearls, they seldom produce multiple pearls per harvest. A tiny mother of pearl bead is inserted into each oyster, and a pearl grows around it. For this reason, Akoya Pearls are often perfectly round. Top-quality Akoya Pearls have a mirror-like luster and are available in a variety of subtle neutral colors and overtones. When you shop for Akoya Pearls online, you can select your favorite tone from pure white to ivory, rose and peach overtones. Color-treated black Akoya Pearls are also another sought-after option.

Akoya Pearls Compared to Other Types of Pearls

These days, nearly all pearls for sale are cultured pearls. There’s a difference between pearls from freshwater sources and seawater pearls, with pearls grown in seawater being more expensive and rarer. Out of all pearl types, Akoya Pearls offer affordability without compromising on quality and luster. These gems of the sea are highly radiant, feature a thick nacre, and come in a gorgeous array of shades to choose from.
