What does it look like when you see an Akoya pearl fresh from the oyster?

Updated: Apr 17, 2021

Recently, my friend Maki and I joined a great workshop where we could make our very own Akoya pearl jewelry. But, the really interesting part of workshop was when we were able to pick out own pearls straight from oysters which came from Uwajima, Ehime prefecture.

Some people may assume that the size of the pearl would be commensurate to the size of the oyster. But, actually, that isn't the case. So don't judge by the book from its cover!
