Q: WHAT MAKES HANADAMA PEARLS SO SPECIAL?
A: Luster, luster, luster and orient!
These two attributes, above all others, make a pearl valuable. The brighter and more iridescent a pearl is, the prettier it is.
The luster and orient on Japanese Hanadama Akoya pearls is certified to be the very highest and strongest of all Akoya pearls.
These attributes are analyzed and certified to meet specific levels set by the Pearl Science Laboratory of Tokyo, Japan. The PSL is the foremost authority on Hanadama pearls, and the only official Hanadama grading lab in the world.
Untreated, Natural Color Japanese Hanadama Akoya Pearls feature some of the most brilliant, luminous Akoya luster we've ever seen.
Natural Color Hanadama Akoya pearls are simply washed and polished, and skip the traditional after harvest processing treatments such as bleaching and pinking, altogether.
The pearls are quite lovely, with a pronounced Orient iridescent "soap bubble" effect, and a very cool-hued Silver Overtone range. Graduating from 9.0-9.5mm, this 18-inch necklace is the embodiment of luxury and glamour, and the absolute largest size of this pearl type regularly produced.
