MIKIMOTO 125th Anniversary

This year marks 125 years since MIKIMOTO founder Kokichi Mikimoto succeeded in the cultivation of pearls. As the originator of the cultured pearl, MIKIMOTO continues to devise a wide array of creations in its enhanced pursuit of beauty. Mikimoto embarked upon the path of becoming a jeweller in order to fulfill his dream of adorning women the world over with pearls.

One stop on Mikimoto’s journey that helped to bring about his worldwide recognition is a place located very far away from Japan: Paris, France. MIKIMOTO held an exhibition at the 1937 Paris International Exposition featuring its yaguruma sash clip, which was met with high commendation.

MIKIMOTO subsequently opened a shop in Paris’ Place Vendôme, which houses only the most globally-acclaimed jewellers.

Today, MIKIMOTO is known among jewellery enthusiasts around the globe for its truly authentic elegance.

MIKIMOTO is pleased to present the 125th anniversary Pendant and Earrings to celebrate this remarkable year, enchanting luster of the exclusive size of 9.00mm and 9.25mm Akoya Pearls are set on 18K White Gold which perfectly show MIKIMOTO exquisite craftsmanship.

It reminds us why the pearl necklace has long been the ultimate object of fascination and fantasy to this day.
