7.5 x 8mm Collection Quality Japanese Akoya Culutred Pearl Necklace
5 out of 5, Based on 5 Reviews.
I have done business with AP three times. The first was a simple restringing job, which was completed promptly and capably, at very reasonable cost. My second AP experience was the purchase of a 16-inch Collection Quality 7.5x8mm Akoya necklace for my wife on our tenth anniversary - probably the most successful gift Ive ever given anyone. The pearls are stunning, my wife loves them, and at $2750 they were a relative bargain. (see http://www.americanpearl.com/75x8mmcolqua.html)
On the third occasion, I purchased APs Weekly Special - a 9 x 10 mm Multicolor Freshwater Pearl Necklace - as a birthday present for a family friend; another great success, with the added bonus that the recipient thought I had spent far more than I had (she felt so guilty, though, that I had to tell her the real price: Under $300 with the discount. (see http://www.americanpearl.com/weeklyspecial.html) Aside from a high-quality product at an excellent price, AP excels at customer service. Since I work near their Fifth Avenue office, Ive had the pleasure of dealing with Eddie Bakhash in person. Hes a great guy, very passionate about his field, and happy to educate curious customers about oyster esoterica. Everything is fully guaranteed, and the packaging and paperwork is beautifully presented.
I cant comment on shipping, because I have always picked up the merchandise in person. I gave AP top marks for Shipping Options and Delivery anyway, because Eddie has been so accomodating about the timing of pickup. In short, American Pearl is - if you will pardon an obvious pun - a rare gem.

The experience was exemplary in every way. Eddie and his staff were patient and professional, explaining various the options and trade-offs in selecting pearls. He encouraged me to visit his big-name competitors, which I did. Apparently, a research trip to Mikimoto and Tiffany nearly always leads to a customer returning to (and buying from) American Pearl.
The pearls are magnificent, my wife is ecstatic, and I have the satisfaction of knowing we got the very best at an extremely fair price.
Being treated with respect by a firm that takes its product and services sersiously is a rare treat. I would recommend American Pearl to anyone interested in purchasing pearls. I also recommend their website to anyone who simply wants to learn more about this extraordinary product of nature.
