Cultivation

AN AKOYA CULTURED PEARL IS NOT AN ARTIFICIAL OR SYNTHETIC PEARL; IT IS PRODUCED BY A PEARL OYSTER AND BY THE NORMAL PROCESSES OF PEARL GROWTH.

The only difference between a natural pearl and the cultivated variety is that a nucleus has been inserted into the oyster to enable the oyster to have a good start.

It ensures a larger and more evenly shaped pearl is produced.

Pearls that were taken from the water in ancient times were natural.

Today they are very, very rare.
