Pearl Exporting Story

     Pearl Exporting specializes in Japanese Akoya saltwater Keshi pearls, and are involved in every aspect of the business. We have been in business since 1962 and are known for the quality of our product and the beauty of our designs. We drill the pearls, have them strung using the traditional process, and incorporate them into our innovative jewelry designs.  We provide strands, loose as well as innovative Keshi jewelry.

     Because of their small size, Japanese Akoya saltwater Keshi can be very difficult to string, but our company has perfected the art of drilling and stringing over our four decades of commitment to craftsmanship and quality. In fact, we are the only company worldwide that meticulously designs and strings these uniquely small pearls to perfection. With exact attention to detail and more than fifty years of experience, each piece has been designed by skilled artisans to the very highest of standards. 

 

     To explain what Japanese Akoya Keshi Pearls are, one must start by explaining what they are not:  Keshi aren't found in large quantities and in fact are an extremely rare form of pearl. Discerning jewelers and customers know that Keshi aren't freshwater pearls, which are harvested by the ton. Yet in the marketplace, many dealers are inaccurately referring to Chinese freshwater pearls as "Keshi". In fact, true Japanese Keshi pearls are from the Japanese Akoya Oyster found only in the Sea of Japan.
