Akoya pearls have long held the traditional view of a pearl necklace in the West. They have been cultured in Japan for many decades before World War II, after which many GIs picked up strands of these pearls for their mother or special someone back home. Thus the pearl necklaces of the 1940s and 50s were mostly Akoyas from Japan. While Akoyas maybe remembered to loved ones, they are perfect for anyone of any age. Their variety of sizes and styles make Akoya pearls the perfect fit for any lifestyle and fashion.
