    Pearl type

    Akoya pearls start life when a technician implants a spherical resin or mother of pearl nucleus into the pearl bearing oyster alongside an epithelial cell graft that has come from the mantle tissue of a donor oyster. The graft forms a pearl sac around the resin or mother of pearl implant within which layers of nacre are secreted to cover the nucleus. Akoya pearl bearing oysters must be three years old before they are able to host a pearl successfully and their life expectancy is only seven years.

    Pearl lustre

    Always choose the pearls with the deepest lustre within the budget set, if necessary compromising on size and surface perfection, as it is the lustre which will light up the wearer’s face and will therefore be most flattering. All the pearls we use in Coleman Douglas Pearls jewellery are individually chosen for their lustre.

  • Pearl surface: Very Good
  • Nacre quality: High Learn more

    Nacre quality

    Akoya pearls usually have a good 0.5mm nacre coating. The thicker the nacre is, the longer the pearls will last, and usually the better their lustre will be.
