Talking about Japan Pearls, many people will think of akoya pearls, which are produced in the cool waters of Japan. Japanese akoya pearls are known for their roundness and high lustre, as their nacre crystals are fine and compact, reflecting maximum light. A symbol of classic beauty, a necklace with Japanese akoya pearls in pinkish white colour is regarded as the best match for wedding gown.
Given the production fall of akoya pearls in Japan, many Japanese pearl companies have been expanding into South Sea pearls and Tahitian pearls. Thus, we now have a much wider selection of Japan Pearls.
No matter what type of pearls they are dealing in, Japanese pearl companies are reputed for their technique of mixing and matching. When composing a pearl necklace with the aim to achieve homogeneity, their trained sorters match the pearls in all aspects – colour, size, shape, luster, nacre condition; when composing a multi necklace mixing different colours, sizes and shapes, sorters arrange pearls to bring out the contrasting beauty of each pearl while at the same time achieving an overall harmony. These require an artistic sensitivity.
Meanwhile, Japanese jewellers are good at bringing out pearl beauty in their designs. For example, Fiore Ltd, specialising in pearl jewellery, manufactures a selection of elegant designs with South Sea, Tahitian, akoya and freshwater pearls as well as natural pearls incuding abalone pearls and conch pearls.
At every jewellery show in Hong Kong, among the most crowded areas is always the Japan Pearl Pavilion, which groups 60 to 100 pearl companies in Kobe, Tokyo and other parts of Japan.
