    Default Tennyo grade akoyas!

    just wanted to share some photos )


    i've never seen them in real life and could find only little information of these babies
    until i went hanadama earring shoppping in tokyo!

    these tennyo grade were BEAUTIFULLLLLLLLLLLLL but so expensive.

    i'm guessing there are several hidden/unknown grades within tennyo also as price varied greatly..

    Seoulite,

    Thank you for the photos! Gorgeous pearls! Did you purchase the Hanadama earrings? We'd enjoy seeing them (apologies if I missed a post where you showed them.)

    I second Pattye on pics of any finds you had during your trip. Any one else do the conversion for that last necklace from Yen to USD? Holy guacamole!

    Thanks everyone for your interest and posting the pics in the right angle..

    I purchased 8mm hanadama earrings (pinkish ones) , 8mm akoya earrings (white/ last picture) and one necklace (6-6.5mm + 45cm- as I don't usually wear necklace and i wanted it less formal) that almost matches the color of hanadama earrings.

    i'm planning to get bigger earrings next time in tokyo.. but let's see..
