Hanadama Pearls are extremely fine Akoya Pearls certified by the Pearl Science Laboratory (PSL) of Japan. They are world-renowned because of their outstanding luster and orient.
The Fascinating History of Hanadama Pearls
Hanadama Pearls were named by Kokichi Mikimoto, also known as the Father of Cultured Pearls. He used the term to describe only the finest of the gems. The word “Hanadama” means ‘spherical flower’ in Japanese.
What Is PSL Certification?
Many pearl experts often refer to these gorgeous gems of the sea as Flower Pearls. Today, the only gems that qualify to carry the name Hanadama Pearls are Akoya Pearls certified by PSL, which rigorously tests with inner inspections and close up surveys to see if the gems have the following:
Pearl Luster – Must be very strong
Pearl Surface – Must be almost flawless and blemish-free
Nacre Thickness – Thick nacre, usually .60mm on smaller pearls (6-7mm) and 0.8mm on larger pearls (8-9mm)
Aurora/Orient – Surface features include a rainbow aurora effect
Internationally Recognized For Their Signature Luster And Flawless Quality
Cultured Hanadama Pearls feature the highest luster of all its kind on the market. In fact, they are so bright in luster; an Akoya Pearl necklace can catch eyes from the other side of crowded rooms. Furthermore, most Akoya Pearls are light reflection emitting thanks to their smooth surface, making these gems a remarkable addition to any elegant outfit.
In addition to their light reflection, these flawless gems come in the most delicate shades. For example, you can find a natural white Hanadama with almost no blurring, staining, or other blemishes around the edges. We always recommend taking a step back to enjoy the eye-catching pearl quality of your Hanadama pearl necklace, bracelet, or matched pair of Hanadama pearl earrings whenever you catch your reflection in the mirror or even a shop window!
Why The Nacre of Hanadama Pearls Is So Important?
The Orient of cultured Hanadama Pearls is described as a shimmering soap bubble effect. Their nacre is very thick, making these gems iridescent, resilient, and strong.
