There is only one original in the world of culture pearl jewellery—that original is Mikimoto. In 1893, company founder Kokichi Mikimoto created the world’s first cultured pearl and established a standard for unrivalled cultured pearl jewellery that remains to this very day.
Today, the task of continuing this rich tradition of artistry, craftsmanship and quality falls to a team of skilled artisans working in the Mikimoto studios. Their modern cultured pearl jewellery reflects the Japanese aesthetic, yet is influenced by various cultures around the world.
The designs are breathtakingly beautiful: cultured pearl earrings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets and rings that are as much works as they are pieces of fine jewellery. Only the top 10 percent of all cultured pearls meet the Mikimoto standard, so they have the best colour, lustre, size and shape.
Over 125 years after it was first created, the legendary Mikimoto Pearl is still revered by those seeking the finest cultured pearl earrings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets and rings. The Mikimoto Pearl represents fine jewellery to be treasured for generations to come.
You can discover your perfect cultured pearl gift here. Or you can experience the entire Mikimoto collection of cultured pearl fine jewellery at the Raffi Jewellers Flagship Boutique in Cambridge, or the Conestoga Mall location in Waterloo, ON.
