About MikimotoFor millennia, pearls had been so rare that they were out of the reach of everyone but the one percent of jewelry buyers. Mikimoto Koichi, a Japanese inventor and jeweler, was deeply troubled by pearls’ exclusivity, the ecological damage of their harvesting, and the low quality of pearls making their way into the market. In 1893, Mr. Mikimoto discovered the process by which Akoya oysters created pearls. Since that discovery, the Mikimoto brand has been synonymous with the highest quality cultured pearls in the world, and more than that, for the absolutely perfect jewelry that show off their pearls better than any other pearl jewelry designers.
Popular Mikimoto Collections at Jewelry Design CenterThe Core collection of fashion rings from Mikimoto is designed to put a radiant cultured pearl front and center without falling into gaudiness. The minimalism of these rings adds touches like dainty side diamonds that reflect light on the pearls, tones of 18k gold that compliment and contrasts the color. And don’t think that Mikimoto sticks to white pearls. Rather, you can expect that Mikimoto puts as much love into their black, peach-colored, and pink pearls. There’s something surprising and wonderfully gorgeous about putting a gold pearl in a cradle of a swooping ring of yellow gold.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for an inventive way to showcase pearls in a necklace, look to the OM Rose Gold collection. The 18k pink gold used in these refined necklaces is crafted to resemble flowers, ranging from a single graceful blossom to a whole cascade of falling peonies. The diamonds pave-set into these flowers gives them a dewy sparkle, and no matter your choice, the flowers always lead to a flawless Mikimoto pearl. If you’re interested in pearl bracelets, brooches, or earrings, don’t forget that the designer is also prepared to help satisfy your desire for top-quality pearl jewelry.
