I AM SO INCREDIBLY PLEASED TO SEE A POST CELEBRATING AKOYAS! There are posts on the forum that seem to suggest that we are only looking for substitutes for non-bead nucleated pearls when nothing could be further from the truth. I saw my first strand of Hanadamas about two years ago at Iridesse. I pulled it out of the case and inspected it, but unfortunately, I wasn't able to compare it with my freshadamas. I do know it wasn't pinked.
I think Akoyas feel incredibly sensual against the skin and deliciously decadent. And the luster doesn't fade.
I'm jealous, Blaire. Wear them in the best of health!
I went back to reread your post and now I'm confused. Are the Hanadamas pinked? Thanks!
