Mikimoto – the First Name in Cultured Pearls


No – a cultured pearl is not a pearl that knows to hold out it’s pinky when drinking tea. A cultured pearl is one that is deliberately grown – as opposed to found at random in the wild.

Ultimately – the Mikimoto name became synonymous with pearls. Read more about this interesting man and his history here. (Click on history in the top menu.) Or just enjoy the pictures of the jewelry!
