Mikimoto founder Kokichi Mikimoto succeeded in creating the world’s first cultured pearl in 1893.

Mikimoto embarked upon the path of becoming a jeweler in order to fulfill his dream of adorning women the world over with pearls.

One stop on Mikimoto’s journey that helped to bring about his worldwide recognition is a place located very far away from Japan: Paris, France.

Mikimoto held an exhibition at the 1937 Paris International Exposition featuring its yaguruma sash clip, which was met with high commendation. Mikimoto subsequently opened a shop in Paris’ Place Vendôme, which houses only the most globally-acclaimed jewelers.

Today, Mikimoto is known among jewelry enthusiasts around the globe for its truly authentic elegance.
