about pearl


Lilla Rio uses only carefully selected Akoya pearls produced in the ancient third pearl farm located in Isejima, Ago bay on the coast of Japan. Japanese traditional pearl farming grows the Akoya shell (the mother oyster) for three years, and tended for a further 5 to 6 months to allow the pearl to develop. In spring, the pearl core is inserted into the oyster by highly skilled technicians. Then, the oyster is returned to the sea, where it is protected and cleaned for a further one or two years before being brought ashore and opened. As a result of the changing seasons and temperature, Japanese Akoya pearls produce the small textures and the deep brightness.


Golden pearls

“Golden pearls” account for less than 8% of all “Akoya pearls”. Lilla Rio uses highest quality ‘AAA ‘graded “Golden Aurora Pearls” that are only 2% of Golden pearls. Golden Aurora Pearl is very rare so please pardon us when it is out of stock.
