Pearls come in so many varieties and colours and so the combinations and possibilities of pearl necklaces for men are vast.

Whatever your choice of men’s pearl necklaces, the colour of the pearls and the size of the pearls is a matter of personal taste but we at Aquarian Pearls advise you to never compromise on lustre. The more nacre coating on the pearl, the stronger the lustre,and lustre is a very important virtue or quality in pearls.

The freshwater pearl necklaces being worn by men are typically 6, 7, or 8 millimetres in diameter and come from the freshwater pearl producing mussels of mainland China, are knotted and simply clasped, and very reasonably priced.

A touch more money than for a freshwater pearl necklace and a great option for a man’s pearl necklace is a Japanese akoya strand. First cultivated by Kokichi Mikimoto and brought to the world through ingenious and daring marketing campaigns and events, Mikimoto made pearls affordable to millions of consumers worldwide. Prior to Mikimoto’s establishment of pearl farms at the start of the 20 th century, the only pearl necklaces available were natural pearl necklaces that commanded prices higher than houses and so were only available to the very few.

At Aquarian Pearls we have also sold Tahitian Pearl strands and Australian pearl strands to men.

The Tahitian pearl strands measure mostly between 9 and 11 millimetres, and also are sometimes seen threaded on leather chord necklaces for men. Lead singer of Aerosmith, Stephen Tyler has been photographed in his Tahitian pearl on chord necklaces several years ago. Gleaming black with shades of green,blue,red,peacock,silver, and pistachio,

Tahitian pearl necklaces for men are full of variety and endlessly unique and interesting.

Australian pearl necklaces for men are white and bright and typically measure between 10 and 13/14 millimetres and are noted for their wonderful lustre and pristine white colour.

Aquarian Pearls owner David Norman wears a single Australian pearl as a necklace threaded on chord and loves its sense of style and its aura of peace and calm and healing.
