Japanese Akoya pearls auction

Japanese Akoya pearls auction has been started.

Quality of this year depend on the place. Some area made very good quality, however some area made poor quality.
So it is not easy to say price of this year.

In general, price of fine quality is strong. Particularly price of 6 to 7mm is strong.

Price of poor quality is weak. Because economy situation is not good in all over the world including Japan.

Many pearl farms are closed the business, so total quantity is down.
