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

Mikimoto embarked upon the path of becoming a jeweller 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 jewellers.

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



This new collection draws inspiration from the yaguruma sash clip, which was lauded worldwide after Mikimoto exhibited it during the 1937 Paris International Exposition.

Les Pétales Place Vendôme

This jewellery was inspired by the rose petals fluttering in the Place Vendôme in Paris.
The gorgeous collection is befitting of the plaza, which is home to the world’s most luxurious brands.

Pearl Necklace –Matinée–

Pearl necklaces come in various lengths in order to match different occasions and outfits. The matinee version is about 60cm long, and was named for the fact that it is often worn together with daytime clothing in western countries.


Mikimoto is proud to make its living craftsmanship available to jewellery aficionados, which include royalty and nobility from around the world.
Mikimoto is also the first company in Japan to produce the tiara, which is a type of jewellery that requires a particularly high level of technical precision.
