    NO. You can't buy a decent akoya for $79.00. That is less than one costs to produce.

    The seller's listings are filled with freshwater pearls in lavender, peach, white and various dyed colors-- all listed as akoyas.

    The seller's name is "honest1989" but there is nothing honest about calling freshwater pearls "akoyas".

    thank you for helping to educate me. Is Pearl Paradise the best place to buy a necklace?
