Generally speaking an akoya pearl bracelet offers a very clean surface with extremely round pearls. The akoya pearl bracelet will most likely cost more than a freshwater pearl bracelet mainly as a result of the higher quality, shape and luster that the akoya pearls are capable of producing. This isn’t to say all freshwater pearls are inferior. In fact some freshwater pearls can be 2 or 3 times more valuable than akoya pearls!
A freshwater pearl bracelet, however, is considered the best bang for your buck. This is mainly attributed to the quality of freshwater pearls.
