Learn About Akyoa Pearls - as part of the Wedding series by GeoBeats.
Akoya pearls are absolutely beautiful pearls. A good example would be the necklace that I am actually wearing right now. They have a very high luster and their overtones are absolutely extraordinary. They are great for special occasions. Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy loved to wear Akoya pearls. The popular sizes on Akoya pearls are generally 7 to 8 mm, but the other sizes are about 5 to 10 mm.
Their color choices are white with pink overtones, white with silver overtones, and black. Now a general rule that I always like to make sure that people understand about Akoya pearls is that the white with a pink overtones generally tends to look very good on fair skinned people. Whereas white with silver overtones tends to look very good on darker skinned people.
They generally range from about 45 dollars for a pair of earrings to 250 dollars for about a 6 and a half to 7mm necklace. You are looking at about 1,100 dollars for a 7 and a half to 8mm necklace of high quality or high grade. They are very elegant, classy choice of jewelry to choose for any special occasion.
