Learn more about Akoya vs Freshwater Pearls:
Shape: Akoya pearls will be perfectly round in all pearl grades, while the vast majority of Freshwater pearls may be slightly off-round.
Luster: Akoya pearls display very sharp and bright luster, even in some of the lower qualities. Freshwater pearls generally feature a softer, more “satiny” luster that tends to be visibly more diffuse around the edges of reflected light sources.
Blemishes: Akoya pearl blemishes include subtle white “chalky” spots, flat spots, wrinkling in the nacre and tiny pin prick-like inclusions. Freshwater pearl blemishes are typified by white chalky spots, raised ridges, tiny pin prick patterns and small, streak-like score marks. Both pearl type’s blemishes are very small however, and should only be visible upon close inspection.
Prices: Akoya pearls are more rare (and traditionally more expensive) than Freshwater pearls, and are considered by most pearl buyers to be a “luxury” pearl type.

Sizes + Measurements
Cape Cod bracelets and nautical hook bracelets are designed to be worn like a close-fitting bangle. Either the ball unscrews or the hook comes undone so that you may open up the bracelet to slip over your wrist. It is not meant to be slipped over the hand (your correct size will most likely be too small to fit over your hand.)
To ensure the recommended fit, please measure the circumference of your wrist with a soft tape measure wrapped snugly around the wrist bone. As a general guideline, we recommend adding half an inch to that measurement to find your proper size bracelet.
For example, a wrist measuring 6.5" would need to order at least a 7" Cape Cod bracelet. It is safer to round up when falling between sizes. This is a general guideline, as some people may prefer a looser fit or a more snug fit.
(As a side note, most adults are larger than a size 6". This is the most common exchange we see (with people needing a larger size). When ordering a 6", please note this is a very small size for an adult.)
