MIKIMOTO

A LOVE LETTER TO THE SEA. SINCE 1893
This year marks 130 years since our founder, Kokichi Mikimoto, successfully created the world's first cultured pearls and embarked on a journey to become a fine jeweller. Through our long history, we have developed a sense of gratitude and respect for nature. Out of our passion to protect and live in harmony with our environment, we wrote a love letter to the sea where we grow beautiful pearls.
