As stated by Stuller, a preferred and quality source of jewelry creating resources, "Akoya cultured pearls are best-known of the cultured pearls, their roundness, nacre depth, and consistent luster have positioned them as the preferred choice for a timeless statement of good taste.
Akoya pearls are harvested after 9 to 16 months. Then they pass through the lengthy and highly skilled process of hand sorting and grading. Appraisal of the pearl considers natural luster, surface imperfections, shape, and size. The most valued Akoya pearl colors are white and white with pink undertones.
Mikimoto, Akoya (or Pinctada Fucata Martensii) culturing process inventor, helped refine modern-day pearl culturing techniques and production. Successful culturing emerges from thoughtful planning, patient tending, and nurturing of the producing mollusks. It requires an enormous investment of time, money, science, and people."
