Japanese Akoya Pearl Necklace
Cultured Japanese Akoya pearls are bead-nucleated cultured pearls produced from Akoya oyster Pinctada fucata martensii and Pinctada fucata chemnitzii. It is primarily found in Japan, China, Vietnam, South Korea and Australia. Akoya pearls are the specialty of Japanese pearl farms. It was first cultured pearls to be farmed using a bead and mantle tissue technique patented by Kokichi Mikimoto for Japanese Akoya pearl from Japan in 1916.
It is the smallest pearl-producing oyster used in pearl culture today thus often found in the market in sizes from 3 to 10mm. They are also tend to be the most consistently round and near-round pearls making it adorned by many people.
Japanese Akoya pearls with the ability of producing bright mirror-like luster are generally white or cream colored, with overtone colors of rose, silver and cream. Non-white colors such as blue, silver-blue and yellow exist but are considered uncommon colors.
Ruby that is not deemed red enough is actually considered a pink sapphire and not a Ruby. Ruby can contains secondary colors such as orange, purple, violet, and pink.
Ruby showing a very vivid crimson color would be deemed the most desirable but also very rare. Pigeon’s blood color is a vivid red color with high intensity and low tone without brown and orange overtones. That is why Pigeon Blood Ruby are considered so valuable.
Traditionally, ruby was dominated by Pigeon Blood Ruby from Burma however, in recent years, Pigeon Blood Ruby has been found from Vietnam, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Madagascar and very recently from Mozambique.
When mentioned about sapphire, blue is the all-time favourite color and the most classic choice. As color is the most important determinant, saturated hues that are neither too light nor too dark being the most valuable.
Royal Blue Sapphire is medium dark blue color in tone. Gems that have little or no gray or brown modifier are described as vivid. Royal Blue Sapphire with vivid saturation considered most valuable. Royal Blue Sapphire from Sri Lanka still considered most valuable compared to royal blue sapphire from rest of the world.
Sapphire over 2 carats are rare and prices tend to increase exponentially with carat weight. Any high quality blue sapphire over 5 carats would be regarded as very rare and collectible.
