A new chapter in our history began when Kokichi Mikimoto succeeded in creating the world’s first cultured pearl. “My dream is to adorn the necks of all women around the world with pearls.” — The founder, Kokichi Mikimoto
Mikimoto is a company that has dedicated itself to the pursuit of beauty for over a century.

Mikimoto jewelry is a wink to eternity.
