Are Mikimotos Reserve Assortment Akoyas that a lot better than rivals' choices?

Good day All! That is my first publish. I am a private assistant to a dude that is fairly effectively off. I’m serving to him with shopping for his girlfriend’s Christmas presents. One of many objects he desires to get her is a pearl strand. Your fundamental 18" on a regular basis strand as a result of she does not have one and she or he’s talked about earlier than that she’s at all times wished one. Understanding him, he’ll need the very best quality that he should buy so I have been performing some analysis. She’s fairly petite, 5’0" and cannot be greater than 100 lbs. So I am pondering Akoyas no bigger than 8mm. Anyhow, whereas researching, I learn just a few tidbits concerning the Hanadama designation. I perused pearl paradise and different on-line distributors’ web sites for information on hanadama and to see their choices. I additionally known as a pair Mikimoto boutiques and discovered they do not use the time period Hanadama however assured me their AAA akoyas of their Reserve Assortment are the perfect akoya pearls that may be discovered wherever.

I received some costs and footage from the boutiques in NYC and Vegas and the worth distinction between Mikimoto and one other common pearl jeweler, Assael is staggering. Much more so is the distinction between Mikimoto and on-line distributors’ hanadama strands. Pearl Paradise’s 18" 8-8.5mm Pure White Hanadama w/14K gold clasp is $3,396. Assael’s 18" 8-8.5mm Akoyas (undecided of grade) w/18K gold clasp is $7,250. Mikimoto’s 18" 8-8.5mm AAA "Reserve Assortment" w/platinum and diamonds clasp is $34,090! I do know a platinum and diamond clasp will improve the worth however I used to be shocked on the distinction. I forwarded him the worth information and footage from Mikimoto and he stated he’d make an appointment after he will get again from thanksgiving subsequent week. However my little little bit of analysis has piqued his curiosity in pearl high quality so he had me order a hanadama necklace from pearl paradise. It ought to arrive friday. He is interested by presumably bringing the PP necklace with him to his appointment to see the distinction. (is that cheesy?) I want I may go along with! I wanna contact $34K pearls! lol

Anyhow, TLR Are Mikimoto’s Reserve Assortment akoyas that rather more superior to their rivals’ greatest akoyas?
