Natural pearls have been immortalized in paintings, praised by poets and coveted by royalty almost since time immemorial. But only Akoyas—the “crown jewel of cultured pearls” takes over 500,000 man and oyster hours to create. Each Akoya pearl can spend up to 1 ½ years growing from a beautiful dream to a radiant reality. While the effortless glow of each near-perfect orb makes it look easy, this collection represents about 60 years of hard labor.
Those numbers are staggering. But as soon as you see these pieces on her you’ll realize that this is the kind of luxury worth waiting for. In this collection, Akoya pearls in three sizes are joined by white diamonds forming pefect clusters of luxurious gems in warm rose gold settings. Let her know she was worth waiting for with the jewelry world’s most long-awaited treasure.
