Akoya pearls

The Akoya pearl is the classic white saltwater pearl that comes from the Akoya pearl oyster (Pinctada fucata). It was originally cultivated in Japan, but is now widely cultivated in China as well.

The beads are round or slightly baroque in shape, and colours range from white, white/pink, white/blue-green to cream. The size is limited by the size of the oyster, and is typically between 2-9 mm, but in rare cases it may be as large as 10 mm.

South Sea pearls

There are two types of South Sea pearl oysters (Pinctada maxima): the silver-lipped and the gold-lipped. The silver-lipped pearl oyster creates pearls in shades of cream, white, silver-white and rose-white, whereas the pearls from the gold-lipped pearl oyster are in shades of cream, yellow, and deep gold. The white pearls typically come from Australia and more recently from Indonesia, while the more golden pearls come from Indonesia, the Philippines or Burma.

Shapes vary from more baroque to beautifully drop-shaped or perfectly round. Sizes generally range from 9-18 mm, but there are rare ones that measure more than 20 mm.

Tahiti pearls

The Tahiti pearl comes from the black-lipped pearl oyster (Pinctada margaritifera) and grows in large natural reserves in the remote lagoons of French Polynesia, where it gets its name from the largest of the islands, Tahiti.

The Tahiti pearl stands out from other pearls due to its dark colour, shape and size. The number of shapes is almost infinite, ranging from baroque to nearly perfect drops. Tahiti pearls are among the largest in the world, between 8-16 mm, with certain rare ones measuring up to 20 mm.
