What Are Mikimoto Pearls?

              Mikimoto is a luxury jewelry brand founded by the first person to successfully culture a semi-spherical pearl, Kokichi Mikimoto. Since that day in 1893, Mikimoto has used the strictest standards of quality when selecting pearls to create pearl jewelry.

How Are Pearls Graded?

              The qualities that determine a pearl’s grade are the thickness of the outer coating called the nacre, the shape, the size, and the color. For Akoya pearls, the grade ranges from the lowest “A” grade to the highest “AAA” grade. The grading system differs for other types of pearls such as freshwater pearls and South Sea pearls which can be graded up to a “AAAA.”

How Do I Care for Mikimoto Pearl Jewelry?

              To maintain the radiance of your pearls, avoid contact with cosmetics, hair spray, and perfume by adorning them last. Perspiration can also affect their luster, so it's advisable to gently wipe them with a soft cloth before storage. Avoid long-term storage in security boxes to prevent dehydration. Pearl rings, designed for occasional wear, risk damage if worn daily. Enjoy your pearls regularly but restring them periodically, even if worn infrequently, to ensure their lasting beauty and integrity.
