Our highest-quality Akoya cultured pearls are strung securely on a hand-knotted silk cord. The necklace is secured with an 18k white gold safety clasp accented with three pavé-set diamonds.
This is necklace is made with high quality pearl, excellent luster, perfect round shape and very clean surface.

Customer service told me these were comparable to Mikimoto's "AA" graded pearls. That was a bit optimistic having viewed the Mikimoto's in person, but these are still high quality pearls. In my view, the slight drop in luster in exchange for a 50% discount...definitely worth it.

Thanks to Blue Nile for making my pearl necklace shopping experience enjoyable and easy. Paula loved the necklace - it is wonderful. I was also delighted that Blue Nile personnel contacted me quickly to resolve a potential ambiguity in my order. You guys are great - and your website is excellent!
