This is a gorgeous Premier Akoya cultured pearl brooch pin.
Akoya pearls are the specialty of Japanese pearl farms.
The first pearls to be cultured were in the 1920's.

They have a white color and rosé overtone especially complimentary to a fair complexion.
Akoya pearls are a high-quality pearl. As a rule ...... Akoya pearls are on average larger,
smoother, rounder, and more lustrous than Freshwater pearls.

ERA: This brooch was purchase in the 1960's in Japan.

ORIGIN: It is from Victor's Pearls near the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo.
Victor's Pearls was on the fifth floor of the Yuraka Building,
and had a shop in the International Arcade behind the Imperial Hotel circa 1970's.

MARKS: Silver. This must be treated silver because there is no tarnish and shows no patina at all.
I have never polished it. I do not know what special compound keeps this so extremely clean.

CONDITION: Excellent pre-owned condition. I see no wear.
The nacre on the pearls is absolutely gorgeous.....deep and glowing.
The pin clasp is secure. The finish is amazingly clean and original.
Brooch looks new but the box has a couple small scuffs on the outside

SIZE: 1-3/4" wide 1-1/4" high

Your purchase will arrive securely packaged in its original box.
Thanks so much for visiting my shop.
