Discover the Unique History of Edison Pearls

Real Edison pearls usually have a large size (most common sizes are between 10mm-13mm), pearl sizes above 15mm are rare, and pearls with size under 10mm are usually not real Edison pearls… Some sellers are using “Edison Pearl” term to sell traditional freshwater pearls for a better price.

Although the company is developing small size Edison pearls of 3-8mm, the results were not satisfying. Hope that we would be able to see Akoya pearls size & quality Edison pearls in the future!

In November 2018, the very first batch of natural dark golden color Edison pearls was harvested, after 9 years of research and development.
