In the elegant pearl jewelry industry, the house of Mikimoto is synonymous with superior quality and unparalleled beauty. Established by enterprising Japanese pearl king Kokichi Mikimoto, the brand proudly bears a heritage of innovation and pioneering spirit. It was Kokichi who first succeeded in culturing the perfect spherical Akoya pearl in the early 1900s. This paved the way for the vibrant industry of pearls and pearl jewelry. The timelessly classic and deeply symbolic gems used to adorn only the necks of the most regal royalties in the world, such as Cleopatra of the Nile. Thanks to Mikimoto, the beauty of nature’s gift from the sea is now a luxury available as a special adornment for every woman, just as Mikimoto always aspired for. A century and a score of years after its establishment, Mikimoto still cultures the most exquisite and delicate pearl gems in its quaint pearl farm in Japan and continues as one of the world’s sources for the finest pearls.
