MIKIMOTO

MIKIMOTO: The Originator of Cultured Pearls. Since 1893

– In 1893, Mikimoto's founder, Kokichi Mikimoto, successfully created the world's first cultured pearls. Thanks to his accomplishment, the beauty of pearls, once mere products of chance, became available to people in all corners of the globe. Ever since, Kokichi Mikimoto's dream of "adorning the necks of all women around the world with pearls" has lived on through Mikimoto, a company that has dedicated itself to the pursuit of beauty for over a century.

MIKIMOTO Style

From the earliest days of his company, Kokichi Mikimoto recognized the importance of jewellery design. Researchers were dispatched to the U.S. and Europe to study design and manufacturing techniques. The reference materials and actual pieces they brought back to Japan were used to train jewellery designers in cutting-edge Western design and manufacturing skills, laying the foundation for modern jewellery production in Japan. Kokichi Mikimoto spent decades developing new interpretations of traditional Japanese motifs for aesthetically pleasing pearl jewellery, skillfully blending traditional Japanese metalworking craftsmanship and European manufacturing techniques to create the distinctive Mikimoto style.
