Kokichi Mikimoto was born in 1858 on Japan's Shima peninsula. He discovered the beauty of pearls at an early age and realized how they often lacked symmetry and had other imperfections.  Realizing that oysters created pearls when particles of sand or other similar tiny particle entered the oyster's shell, he created a way to induce pearl production in oysters artificially. His ground breaking idea was to introduce a foreign, yet benign, substance into oysters, that coerced them create pearls.

After years of struggling with natural disasters and many failures, Mikimoto finally succeeding in creating near perfect pearls crediting him with being the founding father of cultured pearls. Mikimoto discovered that Akoya oysters made the most beautiful cultured pearls. He farmed Akoya oysters from Ojima Island renaming it "Oyster Island" and opened his first shop in 1899 in a fashionable area in downtown Tokyo.

Mikimoto's Four Seasons Collection: Elegance and Beauty

Posted by Schwarzschild at 1:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (30)

Kokichi Mikimoto, a humble son of a noodle-shop owner, pioneered a method for culturing pearls over a century ago. His company is now a leader in Japan's gemstone market, and his pearls are renowned symbols of status and beauty. To celebrate 120 years of business, the Mikimoto company has released a special edition line of pearl jewelry called "The Four Seasons Collection". Made up of 9 beautiful and unique pieces, it is truly a collection of special magnificence, that is meant to represent the colors and moods of the four seasons.

The Spring suite of jewelry features a gorgeous white South Seas cultured pearl, set in yellow gold and surrounded by dozens of green tsavorites, white diamonds, sapphires, amethysts, and tourmalines of many different colors. The main colors that offset the gold are beautiful greens and pinks that evoke spring, and the beginning of a new year with blooms and blossoms in abundance.

The Summer Ring and Earrings are vivid and brightly colored. With a white South Seas cultured pearl at the center of attention, it is set in a warm yellow gold. The surrounding stones include white diamonds and multi-colored sapphires, ranging from warm colors to cold. One side of the piece is drenched in the hot colors, like the heat of summer. They are made up of deep oranges and warm yellows. The other side contains cool colors, honoring the coastal breezes that calm the summer heat. Deep blue and pink sapphires make the jewelry so bright and colorful, it is almost rainbow-like. 

The Autumn suite features the main stone, a gorgeous Golden South Sea cultured pearl. The settings are warm yellow gold, and the gemstones that accompany the golden pearl are as dramatic as the changing leaves. There are multiple fiery colors of sapphires, from yellow to orange. There are also red hot tsavorites and spessarite garnets, which make the autumn suite absolutely burning with decadence.

Mikimoto Aurora Bracelet

Posted by Schwarzschild at 10:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (30)

Pearls make a very powerful statement. Aside from the basic white pearl, there are many different colors ranging from gold all the way to black pearls. The Mikimoto Aurora Bracelet is composed of 10-8mm Black South Sea cultured pearls with .42 carat of diamonds on a 18K white gold bracelet. Pearls are very delicate, so they subsequently require proper care.

Your Mikimoto Aurora pearl bracelet should be laid out in a sectioned jewelry box, and when carrying the pearl bracelet, it should be in a protective pouch. But it is crucial to remember not to keep pearl jewelry in a security box for an extended period of time. The result of this might be dehydrated pearls. The bottom line is to keep your pearl bracelet in good shape is to wear them often.

It suggested to restring your pearls yearly. In addition pearls should not come in contact with water, because this may weaken the silk thread that keeps the pearls together.

With proper attention your pearls can last a long time. When you have made such a large financial investment, it behooves you to take care of them so they last and give you years of enjoyment.

The elegance of water

Posted by Schwarzschild at 8:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (30)

“No water, no life,” says the famed marine biologist and author Sylvia Earle. That’s the sheer importance of water to every living creature. For others, though, water is more than a core necessity to life—it is also a wellspring of beauty. For Mikimoto, water is the quintessence of style and elegance, which is the inspiration behind its recently launched Splash Collection autumn 2016. This collection takes inspiration on the notion of earth as a dynamic, animated planet and appreciates the essence of water to every living thing. The collection, which is based on the theme of water splashing, features varied-sized Akoya pearls to embody the amount of water drops involved in the pearl’s metamorphosis. The Splash collection showcases a line of charming new pieces, including the 18k white gold Akoya pearl double-strand necklace with diamonds, which can be worn both as a necklace and individually as a brooch.
Mikimoto is available at Schwarzschild's on Alverser Drive and at Carry Town and Short Pump Town Center.

Mikimoto Pearl Island

Posted by Schwarzschild at 2:00:15 AM in Mikimoto (30)

There’s a sense of peace when you look deep into a Mikimoto pearl. It draws you to the core, where a subtle glow teases you to dive in. Interestingly, the serenity you feel about Mikimoto pearls may have something to do with the location where they’ve been first cultivated. Dubbed the Mikimoto Pearl Island, the laidback place is located in Ise Bay in the Mie Prefecture in Japan. You can hear piped music filling the air here, complemented by the softness of the ocean breeze. Old women do free diving to harvest the pearls, a picturesque scene with their white overalls against the blue sea. They perform their duties while whistling capped by the occasional laughter among them. The whole place resonates in simplicity, but you feel elegance in it.

Ancient Wonder in Today's World

Posted by Schwarzschild at 1:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (30)

We have been in a long-standing relationship with pearls. Pearls have been seen as symbols of many things such as chastity, purity and modesty. Ancient Chinese believed that pearls have a protective property. In well documented times, pearls have always been presented as gifts. When Marco Polo visited Mongolian Emperor Kublai Khan, he was reported to have presented him with a pearl that is 575 carats and more than three inches long. This was in the 13th century. In the 16th century, Prince Phillip II of Spain gave a pear-shaped saltwater pearl called La Peregrina to his bride. Today, we haven't gotten over the allure of pearls, their symbols and their functions as gifts. Because of innovations such as that of Mikimoto's pearl culture, it is not just the Royals that can give pearls as gift. Now, we all can enjoy this ancient symbol in our contemporary world with contemporary look and sophistication.

Pearl fashion

Posted by Schwarzschild at 11:36:43 PM in Mikimoto (30)

Pearls like Mikimoto evoke sophistication and style. However, if you're not stylish, you can easily spoil its elegance with overwhelming accents or wrong combinations. If it's your first time to switch to pearl fashion, start simple. Wear a single pearl necklace. Once you get comfortable with it, move on to exploring more intricate designs. For example, you can layer pearl necklaces on top of each other, combining long and short ones to create depth. You can even layer a pearl necklace over a gold or silver necklace to project contrast. As you gain confidence on your pearl style, go chunky by wearing more opulent styles with multiple stones and shapes. Put a trivial accent like a girly bow for added impact. Chunky pearls work well with a trenchcoat and blazer, so despite their bold statements, you can wear them in corporate meetings without coming across as lavish.

How Does Mikimoto Create its Perfect Pearls?

Posted by Schwarzschild at 12:40:50 PM in Mikimoto (30)

Creating pearls combines the delicate nurturing of the natural oyster bed and the painstaking craftsmanship of the pearl jeweler. Mikimoto perfected the process of prodding the oyster to secret thousands of layers of nacre by introducing a nucleus. The nacre, which protects the oyster from the foreign irritant, forms the pearl. In Mikimoto's process, the pearls are formed with unblemished natural roundness. The pearl jeweler then takes the pearls, polish them, and sets them using classical and trendy styles that the signature is known for. Among others, Mikimoto pearl jewelry features multi-layered or multi-colored strands, different clasp styles, and colored stones. Each jewelry piece is a masterpiece by both nature and Mikimoto artists, guided by their attention to detail and passion for creating the best pearls.

History lesson

Posted by Schwarzschild at 3:35:53 PM in Mikimoto (30)

You may be proud showcasing your Mikimoto pearl necklace in a cocktail event and rightly so, they are impressive. Since you’re likely to attract attention and elicit a conversation around pearls, here’s one historical trivia to impress the gawkers. Pearl jewelry has been around North America even before Columbus discovered the land for Europeans. North American tribes and Pacific Islanders were known to use pearls as a status symbol (much like what you’re doing today). Pearl jewelry was also used to signify one’s religions belief. A shaman would likely be wearing a pearl necklace as a symbol of his importance. Outside of the New World, people in the Persian Gulf region would bury their dead with a pearl placed in the right hand dating back 6,000 years.

Pearl 101

Posted by Schwarzschild at 2:56:06 PM in Mikimoto (30)

Even if you already have the most impressive line of diamond rings, earrings and necklaces, you still need pearls as an essential jewelry. Luxury pearl jewelry necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets like Mikimoto exude an air of refinement unmatched by gemstones. But pearls are difficult to handle as a fashion accessory if you’re not familiar with it. Here are some starters. Collar pearl necklaces with two or three strands are very conservative and luxurious. They are reserved for the most formal events. A pearl choker is more casual and versatile and can go with a casual or formal outfit. A princess length pearl necklace is best for crew or high necklines, while a matinee length is perfect for business attire. Opera and rope pearl necklaces are very long strands that require a turtle-neck line to provide a contrast. It is elegant and sexy, ideal for formal romantic dates.

Conch pearls are unique

Posted by Schwarzschild at 7:18:12 AM in Mikimoto (30)

Ready for a different kind of luxurious pearl jewelry? The Mikimoto Conch pearls exude a glamorous earth-toned pink with a distinct flame appearance. They are naturally produced by the Queen Conch mollusk, a large sea snail whose shell is traditionally used by Polynesians as a wind-blown instrument or to sound an alarm. Conch mollusks are not systematically cultured; hence, each pearl is regarded as unique and naturally occurring. Likewise, conch pearls feature a depth that’s reflected by a seemingly internal fire from within.  The mollusks produce oval shaped pearls with pink undertones that Mikimoto captures in its line of Conch Pearls necklaces, rings, and earrings. The Mikimoto Conch pearls are set in platinum with diamond studs to further exhibit the pearl’s unique glimmer.

Pearl 101

Posted by Schwarzschild at 1:10:36 PM in Mikimoto (30)

It’s easy to admire Mikimoto pearls for their soft tone and smooth and its seemingly unblemished surface. But there are more to pearls than appreciating a good brand. Here are some things about pearls that you may want to know. Pearls are categorized as natural or cultured. Most pearl jewelry out there are cultured. The pearl’s luster is its most valued characteristic, the reason why Mikimoto pearls are sought after. Large pearls are more valuable than small ones, but size alone doesn’t make the jewelry fashionable. It’s the style that counts. Most pearls have blemish, but with Mikimoto this seems unnoticeable because of its excellent luster. Cologne, lotion and hairspray can discolour pearls. Apply them first before putting on the pearl jewelry. Limit washing the pearls because it can weaken the string.  Pearls are timeless and always a good accent to any glamorous night. They’re a good investment in fashion.

Culturing beauty

Posted by Schwarzschild at 10:19:45 AM in Mikimoto (30)

Man’s fascination with pearls led to the development of techniques for culturing these previously natural occurring ocean treasures. Cultured pearls come in two categories, the beaded and non-beaded varieties. The Akoya belongs to the beaded category. It is a pearl of such extreme beauty, that only one is grown at a time. It also takes one year for these pearls to reach maturity. Tokichi Nishikawa is credited for bringing the technology to Japan, a process readily embraced by Mikimoto. Today, Mikimoto continues to culture such pearls, turning them into priceless works of art. These pearls are constantly used in the company’s necklaces, rings and bracelets. Mikimoto’s Akoya pearls are known for their luster and color, making them a customary symbol of timeless beauty and elegance.

Their luster can only be matched by the beauty of a woman’s smile. Pearls are not just a thing of grace, they are also of enormous value, with their worth often associated with rarity. They are so uniquely formed that they rival diamonds in charm and monetary weight. It is with this notion that Mikimoto has created its Pearls in Motion Collection necklaces. This array of elegantly crafted necklaces gives pearls the respect that they deserve. A variety of designs are available to suit customers’ tastes. Pearls can be placed anywhere on the 18K gold chain, locking it securely in place using Mikimoto’s propriety mechanism. The necklace is sure to satisfy the discriminating pearl lover for a long time.
