Size:  90.8 KBI love pearls, and as of late Iíve been obsessed with Akoya Pearls, and thanks to all the information found in this forum, I reached out to Cees and the below strand should be on its way soon. The strand is graded AAA and he said that for this size and quality itís very hard to find., nacre thickness he said is over 1mm thick. Itís really hard to tell by the pictures and Iím looking forward to see it in person.

    I thank you all Name:  1F079357-D43F-45F1-B11C-9827A082F7DA.jpeg

    The luster is so pretty! And those are quite large for Akoyas, it should be beautiful!

    Large size for akoyas and nacre 1mm thick and AAA surface. Those are true gems. My Hanadamas are only .4 mm thick and that's considered fairly thick for akoyas. 1 mm is great. You'll have to show us neckshots when you get them. They are going to be spectacular.
