Hanadama Certificates Defined

The Hanadama confirmation is given by the Pearl Science Laboratory of Japan; situated in Tokyo, Japan. A strand of pearls can’t be alluded to as Hanadama unless joined by this authentication. The original declaration must go with the strand; generally the strand is not Hanadama.

The Pearl Science Laboratory plays out a few tests on arbitrary pearls all through the strand to decide its general grade. The pearl surface is amplified and checked for considerations. The nacre quality and profundity is checked, by using optical filaments and x-rays. The luster is controlled by correlation. In the event that all tests are performed and each quality element surpasses or meets the criteria, the strand is considered Hanadama grade. It is essential to note that lone roughly 50% of the strands submitted for Hanadama investigation are acknowledged accordingly by the Pearl Science Laboratory.

In spite of the fact that the Hanadama testament takes into consideration thicker nacre grading than .40 mm, (which demonstrates an aggregate nacre of .80 mm) recall that this test is performed on an arbitrary choice of pearls, and is not characteristic of the general nacre profundity. Every pearl in any given strand will fluctuate, and each Hanadama strand will constantly have pearls with nacre profundities running from .40 mm to 1.00 mm or more. It is difficult to ensure predictable nacre profundity inside a solitary strand.
