Luster, Orient and nacre thickness are the three defining characteristics of Hanadama pearls. Neither fine luster nor orient would be possible without thickly layered, and tightly compacted crystalline nacre.
Luster is the pearl attribute that quantifies the amount of brightness and the sharpness of light being reflected from the surface, or just under the surface of the pearl. Hanadama Akoya pearls should feature extremely sharp luster. Light sources reflected on the surface of the pearl will be very sharp and crisp, with almost no satining or blurring around the edges. You’ll be able to see your detailed reflection smiling back at you when you examine the pearls.
Orient is the iridescent “soap bubble” effect seen only on the finest pearls. White light striking and penetrating the various nacre layers is broken into its spectral rainbow (much like the ‘fire’ in a diamond) and bounced back at the viewer.
