  • AKOYA PEARLS are grown in the Pinctaday fucata, the akoya pearl oyster. These beautiful gems have a deserved place of honor in pearling lore. The akoya pearl is the national gem of Japan, and though it is a cherished gem of Japan, it is not exclusive to Japan. Of course, given the history of pearl cultivation and the promotional expertise of Kokichi Mikimoto that is a reasonable misconception.



  • Akoya pearls are grown with great uniformity. This uniformity makes them ideally suited for necklaces and earrings. They are small, from about 2 mm to 10 mm. They have a delicate look, often with beautiful, subtle overtones. The most popular of these overtones are silver, cream and pink. Akoya pearls are grown in many places. Today, more akoya pearls are grown on farms off the coast of Japan than anywhere else, but akoya farms operate in many other places such as China, Vietnam and Indonesia.


  • The Australian pearling industry has long focused on the large, lustrous South Sea pearls grown on the western side of Australia from Cape Leveque to Exmouth. These pearls are grown using the great Pinctada maxima oyster. These are the largest, most expensive pearls in the world. But these are not the only oysters grown in the waters of Australia. The famous Pinctada margaritifera, black-lip oyster and the smaller Pinctada fucata, akoya oyster also inhabit and thrive in these waters. Over the past decade, interest in producing these other types of pearls has gained ground. Projects are underway and akoya farming in Australia has begun.
