the History of Mikimoto

Mikimoto is the premier producer and designer of the world’s highest quality pearls and pearl jewelry. In 1893, Mikimoto’s founder, Kokichi Mikimoto, successfully created the first cultured pearls. Thus began a lifelong pursuit to fulfill his dream of “adorning the necks of all women around the world with pearls.” For over a century, this dream has lived on through the company that carries his name with honor and pride, and continues to dedicate itself to the pursuit of beauty.

Mikimoto jewelry has become synonymous with only the finest quality materials – platinum or 18k gold, all-natural gemstones that haven’t been irradiated or color treated in any way, and the highest quality silk thread. Mikimoto pieces can be identified by the trademark outline of an oyster, a distinctive engraving of the Mikimoto name, or the signature “M” logo charm.
