Jewelry | Mikimoto, High Jewelry, Japanese Heritage

The company's founder, Kokichi Mikimoto devoted his life to pearls and was called the Pearl King. In 1893, he etched his name in history when he successfully creating the world's first cultured pearls. Ever since, his lifelong 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.

In a time when the world was much bigger than it feels like today, Kokichi Mikimoto was already aiming for global recognition. Japan's first pearl specialty boutique, the Mikimoto Pearl Store was opened in Tokyo's Ginza shopping district in 1899. Subsequently, Mikimoto opened seven international stores in prime locations before the Second World War, including London's New Bond Street and New York's 5th Avenue.

In 1986, Mikimoto's Paris store was relocated to Place Vendôme. It was another dream come true for him. To this day, Mikimoto is the only Asian high jewellery brand in this prestigious location. Carving a path from the past into the future, we continue to produce high jewellery of majestic beauty and brilliance to satisfy the aesthetic needs of our customers, from royalty and aristocracy to jewellery lovers all over the world.
