MIKIMOTO was founded upon a dream by Kokichi Mikimoto “to adorn the necks of women around the world with pearls.”
Kokichi’s passion was pearls, and he was fondly known as the Pearl King
It was in 1893 that he was successful in creating the world’s first cultured pearls, and subsequently MIKIMOTO cemented itself in the history books. The brand has continued to produce exquisite pearls set in daring jewellery creations ever since. The house of MIKIMOTO is built on a love for these pure and lustrous gems of the sea and a desire to showcase them in surprising and unusual ways. As the leading producer of the finest quality cultured pearls, MIKIMOTO has become synonymous with superior quality and immeasurable beauty. Each stunning piece of jewellery illustrates the skilled craftsmanship and attention to detail that has gone into creating each piece as well as the sophisticated, modern design language spoken by the brand. MIKIMOTO personifies excellence with the finest cultured pearls in the world. To own a piece of MIKIMOTO jewellery is nothing short of a luxurious pleasure. We have had the pleasure of partnering with MIKIMOTO for 18 years, showcasing the brand’s lustrous pearl creations throughout our showrooms in both the UK and US.
