Hi everyone. After lurking forever, and soaking in everything I could about pearls (thank you everyone), I took the plunge last year and bought my first tahitian baroque strand and silver/blue akoyas from PP.
So again, thanks for all your knowledge
Recently, I cam across an estate pearl necklace. The seller describes it as: "AAA quality 8mm Japanese pearl choker, 15 1/2"
I'm guessing they mean "akoya" when they say japanese? I did email them but no response yet.
Here's 2 pictures, I've noticed you guys can usually tell akoya's from freshwater pearls and am wondering what you think.
