    Those are all natural light photos taken in the same room. The top photos represent the color the best.

      BeeBee,

      These have the shape and color of blue silver cultured akoya, natural color, saltwater pearls. The nacre "drips" seem more like akoya than freshwater, too. What do you think of the luster? It looks great to me. A very nice strand (I love baroques.)

        It definitely looks like akoya, but I can't be 100% certain on the natural color. The silver seems very consistent through the strand. It is either a natural-color akoya strand or one that has been treated via cobalt-60 radiation. It's really difficult to distinguish between the two, but typically rounds are treated and baroques not as much, so my bet would be on natural.

          They certainly look great ! I love them ! Jeremy and Pattye are the experts but I thought Akoya as soon as I saw them.
