This 9x12mm white Australian south sea cultured pearl necklace like most south sea pearls these exhibit a white bodycolor with a silvery overtone—unlike the Japanese Akoya cultured pearls (available in both silver and rosé overtones). South sea pearls come from a different oyster than Akoya pearls and therefore simply look different. As you can see from the close up, these pearls are perfectly round, high luster and very clean. They are A in quality the highest grade of the A, B, C and D nomenclature assigned to grade south sea pearls. If you were looking for a comparable Akoya strand, check out our pearl necklace page. Similar sizes and qualities of Japanese Akoya Cultured Pearls run anywhere from $6,500 to $12,000 for uniform 9 x 9.5mm and 9.5 x 10mm necklaces in the AA qualities. This 18 inch necklace are strung with silk thread and affixed with American Pearl's 18K yellow gold 'X' clasp.
