Black Akoya Pearl Necklaces

Elegant and enchanting, richly colored black Japanese Akoya pearl necklaces are some of our most highly admired styles of pearl jewelry. The fashionable pieces are made with rare cultured black pearls, harvested from Japanese Akoya oysters. The oysters are found off the coast of Japan, where waters are cool and calm. While traditional Akoya pearls appear in shades of white or cream, Akoya black pearls have a dramatic black color, but maintain their size, shape and lustrous iridescence. They are similar in appearance to a Tahitian pearl.
