About cultured akoya pearl.
Akoya pearl is saltwater pearl cultivated from the akoya oyster. It is commonly known as cultured pearl. They generally have almost perfectly round shape and excellent luster that make them popular pearl jewelry. Cultured pearl demands more market value than freshwater pearl of comparable quality.
The creation of cultured pearls is like other saltwater pearls. The akoya oysters are nucleated with a bead of mother of pearl. The sizes of cultured pearls are mostly smaller than that of other type of pearls, ranging from 4 to 9 millimeters. Most cultured akoya pearls are white, cream gray or golden in color with rose or peacock green overtone color. There is no natural black color for cultured akoya pearl. The black cultured pearl existing in the market is enhanced in some ways.
