    Akoya Pearls

    are salt-water pearls, and the name "Akoya" comes from the oyster that produces the pearl.  Akoya pearls are cultured in thePinctada fucata martensii, also known as the akoya oyster. This mollusk is found and farmed primarily in Japan and China.  Akoyas are known for their wonderful luster and are considered the classic pearl. They are generally white or cream colored, with overtone colors of rose, silver, or cream.
