Akoya Pearls

Pearls from the Akoya oyster (Pinctada fucata) are the classic saltwater pearl, with the best examples presenting a round shape, clean surface and a very high lustre. With each oyster growing no more than one or two pearls at a time, they are rarer than their freshwater counterparts, yet still more affordable than South Sea pearls. With their famed lustre, round shape and delicate overtones, they offer the classic pearl look that is as versatile as the woman who wears them.

Making Akoya pearls affordable

Absolute Pearls source our Akoya pearls from both China and Japan, offering an extensive range of high quality, virtually blemish free gems with radiant lustre and excellent shape. We are highly selective so that we can assure you of the best Akoya pearls available.

Classic chic

Akoya pearls are mostly white and cream in colour, but can display natural pink, silver, gold and grey overtones, and are enhanced to provide affordable black pearls. These pearls have been hugely popular since they first appeared early last century, and have found a place everywhere from the ballroom to the boardroom, from the school concert to the society fundraiser.
