Why does the price jump so much between the smaller size and larger size Akoya pearls?

Large Akoya  pearls are very rare. The Akoya pearl mollusk is approximately 3 inches across. To create a large pearl you would have to implant the mollusk with a very large bead. Very few of the small shells of the Akoya pearl mollusks can handle a large bead.
