Yokota Pearls Price Policy

We don't like "Price Battle" increasing recently, because we think the most important thing for cultued pearls is Quality.
Of course, we are doing our best to provide the best prices.

Unfortunately, pearl grading is very complicated as pearl is not a man-made. So any grades are not pinpoint but range, AAA and Hanadama, for example. In other words, there are also many grades within those ranges.

You may find some AAA Necklaces and Hanadama Necklaces lower than ours at other stores. However, extreme price difference means Quality difference. Making it look like low price is easy by just choosing the lowest in each ranges.
Low price and Quality do not go together. This is the truth of pearl.

We also can supply AAA and Hanadama at more lower prices, but considering the meaning of AAA or Hanadama, we think we are obliged to supply valuable pearls. So we decide our prices so that making our customers satisfied with the best balance of quality and reasonable price.

Meanwhile, for our customers who are looking for the Top Quality, we can supply such pearls.
And if you have fixed budget, feel free to consult us. We will advise you to get the best pearl for you.
