Equal parts dark and elegant, American Pearl's black Japanese Akoya pearl earrings are some of our most admired and most unique styles of pearl jewelry. These high-fashion pieces are made with cultured black pearls harvested from Akoya oysters found off of the coast of Japan, making them some of the most recognizable types of pearls in the world. While traditional Akoya pearls are white or cream, these dramatic versions have a rich, black color with the same round shape and lustrous iridescence.
American Pearl offers cultured black pearl earrings in simple studded styles, as well as more decorative options that feature flower shapes, diamond accents and swirls of white gold. If you want to add a black pearl to any of our other pairs of earrings, we can also create a custom pair designed just for you.
