What Are the Most Classic Pearls to Buy?

 Common Customer Questions: What are the Most Classic Pearls?


Among pearl buyers and collectors, the debate rages: Freshwater pearls, or Akoya? Before taking the plunge, here are a few key differences between the two pearl types so you can make your purchase with confidence.

Choose Akoya pearls if you want a “luxury level” white pearl necklace with very bright, highly reflective luster, perfectly round pearls and perfect matching. The somewhat higher price is worth it if those are the pearl necklace features that you just cannot live without.

Choose Freshwater pearls if you are looking for an “entry level” white pearl necklace for a first-pearls purchase, or you want a necklace that can be worn daily without much worry about wear and tear. Freshwater pearl’s lower prices also make experimentation easy and fun – these pearls are perfect for wearing in layers, longer rope pearl necklaces and creating customized jewelry.

 Featured Pearls of Joy Product Spotlight: Double Strand Akoya Pearl Necklace


"Silver Screen Classic" Japanese Akoya Pearl Double-Strand Necklace, 7.0-7.5mm


Is there anything more classic and glamorous than an Akoya Double-Strand Necklace? These 7.0-7.5mm pearls will radiate from the wearers neck, with a brilliant shine and deep luster. The outer strand is 18.5" and the inner is 17.5", allowing this necklace to fall just below the collar bone.

Like all of our pearl necklaces, this strand is knotted between each pearl for safety and strung with only the finest twin silk. We finished this necklace with a solid 14kt gold clasp.
