Mikimoto Splash Brooch

Posted by Sylvans at 12:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

Mikimoto's Splash Brooch is the epitome of the beauty of a splash of water. Its diamonds radiate from the center of the brooch in several directions and culminate in varying sizes of pearls.
 
Kokichi Mikimoto was born in 1858 in Japan and became fascinated with the beauty of natural pearls. He discovered, though, they were often imperfect in shape and would not make attractive symmetrical jewelry. After countless attempts accompanied by failures in trials and by nature, Mikimoto finally was able to induce pearl production in oysters. He is known as the founder of cultured pearls. He opened his first shop in a fashionable area of Japan and sold his designs with the pearls he created. 
Their lustrous shine, gorgeous strands and delightful patterns he created with pearls became a sensation in Japan and then, the world. Mikimoto realized that the pearls from the Akoya oysters made the most beautiful pearls, using them in most of his prized designs. He added diamonds to many styles to introduce sparkle and more texture. 

His pearls and designs are still considered the most coveted by royalty and society around the globe. Mikimoto's name is synonymous with luxury cultured pearls. His dedication to his craft and love of pearls created an empire like no other in the history of jewelry.

This Splash Brooch created by Mikimoto's hand picked designers fits right in with Mikimoto's vision of perfection. It is set in 18K white gold with nearly 3 carats of diamonds. Topped with Akoya pearls ranging in size from 3.75-8.25 mm, this brooch is sure to delight. It can be worn alone or fitted on a necklace. Its radiant beauty taken from the ocean will be an everlasting delight to own and wear.

Classic is best

Posted by Sylvans at 1:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

Mikimoto has a wide selection of pearl jewelry to match your dress and event. Despite this, the original Mikimoto white South Sea pearl is, arguably, still the most elegant of the pearls. It is classy and nostalgic. The satiny luster of white pearls gives you a vintage appearance, while its subtle opalescence evokes an air of self-assurance. There’s nothing fancy about the South Sea pearls, just an assured style that lends to you an air of importance. The Mikimoto white South Sea pearls are formed by the silver-lipped South Sea oyster, whose culture was perfected by the Mikimoto founder. The pearls range from 9mm and up, and come in various shapes, from perfectly round to oval and teardrop to free-form baroque. The pearls are set as necklaces, rings, and earrings on single or two-toned precious metal.

Born of the Sea

Posted by Sylvans at 4:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

Traditionally worn as jewelry by brides, as it is believed that wearing pearls would prevent women from crying on their wedding day, a pearl is a symbol of purity and innocence. It is the only gem that is derived from a living creature; born of the water, it represents the spiritual world. Pearls are assumed to attract wealth and luck as well as offer protection. As a name, it means precious. It comes as no surprise then that the mysterious gem born of the sea, pure and innocent in its color, is one of the most precious jewels produced by nature. Mikimoto, the legendary pearl jeweler, offers pearl pieces that transcend seasonal trends and reflect iconic elegance at any occasion, in any situation.

Beyond bodily adornment

Posted by Sylvans at 11:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

Did you know that the elegant pearls that we typically see as jewelries and other decorative items? These shell-like gems, made-up of calcium carbonate in small crystalline formations, have been used for many purposes since time immemorial. The clam's adductor muscle had been a favorite gastronomic delicacy for hundreds of countries. Its oyster shell is a choice material for houses, furnitures and other decorative things. And probably unknown to many people right now, the pearl oyster shell had been used as a traditional medicine due to its proven health benefits. Above all, pearls are widely used for its mother of pearl (or nacre) which is a valuable material for a myriad of decorative functions in jewelry, architecture, musical instruments, and fashion. And when it comes to pearls as jewelries, only one name comes into mind, Mikimoto, the acknowledged leader in the industry.

Posted by Sylvans at 1:44:20 PM in Mikimoto (27)

The Mobius strip is that curious mathematical concept that has been adapted in the design of industrial equipment, modern infrastructures, and elegant jewelry pieces.

Never overdressed, always elegant

Posted by Sylvans at 2:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

Prestige refers to a good reputation or high esteem, though in its earlier usage, it meant showiness. When it comes to personal possessions like jewelry, the elements of display and glitter appear to be permanent and inevitable, especially when others can’t help but express honest admiration to the wearer. That’s what happens when someone wears a Mikimoto — where numerous admirers are likely to complement the wearer. This is because with Mikimoto, no other pearl jewelry comes close! Another thing: while diamonds are assured of their rightful place in women’s fashion, pearls have that elemental flexibility of being worn both in the most formal events as well as for ordinary activities such as for work and shopping. Mikimoto pearls are blingy enough for evening wear, but also subdued enough to be worn during the day. 
 
So stop your anxiety of feeling to be overdressed and get your Mikimoto pearls at Sylvan's on Main Street, Columbia, an authorized dealer.

Much ado about pearls

Posted by Sylvans at 1:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

It is common knowledge that pearls are those elegant, rare, and valuable round globules that have adorned women across ages. But not many really know how they are produced. A pearl is a solid object formed inside the soft tissue of a living shelled mollusc. Similar to a clam’s shell, pearls are composed of calcium carbonate formed in tiny crystalline structure deposited in numerous compact layers. Gemologists say that the most ideal ones are pearls with flawless roundness and smoothness, which can only be developed naturally in wild, are immensely uncommon, and can only be found by traditional pearl divers deep under the sea. Lucky for us, though, pearl culture is continually enhancing its production technology that harvested pearls today are nearing the “ideal”…and there’s Mikimoto, the widely-acclaimed Japanese luxury pearl company. So if you’re looking for pearls that are nearest to what nature can offer, look for Mikimoto pearls and most likely, you won’t find the difference from what's an "ideal" pearl.

Pearly Brilliance

Posted by Sylvans at 1:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

What make pearls elegant? Pearls have unique luster that sets them apart from gemstones. The luster appears subdued, which depends on the pearls’ reflection, refraction, and diffraction. But its iridescence that truly catches the eye. The appearance of very subtle hue gradients is caused by the overlapping layers of the pearl, which breaks the light. This is the sense of depth when you look at the core of a Mikimoto pearl. The center seems to trap a glow inside that can’t escape, much like light from a black hole. It’s this feature that gives the Mikimoto elegance and glamour. Unlike diamonds that broadcast their brilliance, pearl jewelry is quiet and confident. And when it comes to pearls, nothing comes close to the mastery of pearl culture by Mikimoto.

The Most perfect engagement ring

Posted by Sylvans at 1:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

When it comes to engagement rings the classic round solitaire diamond ring set in gold or platinum is a favorite. But later trends would challenge that, with popular cuts like emerald, pearl shape and oval literally chipping away the most admired cut title from the round diamond. But there’s an even more interesting challenger to the round cut and it’s not even a diamond: the pearl ring. Why not? Pearls are a prized symbol of love and purity in the ancient world. In Hebrew folklore, it’s said to be Eve’s tear drop after being banished from paradise. For ancient Indians, pearls were regarded as dewdrops from heaven, while in ancient China, they were considered as coming from fiery dragons. In the hands of a Mikimoto jeweler, the pearl ring truly achieves the height of purity. Arguably, the Mikimoto Lace Ring can easily dethrone the diamond round cut, and all other diamond cuts for that matter, as the most perfect engagement ring.

Pearl’s Unique Elegance

Posted by Sylvans at 1:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

What’s simple is most elegant. When it comes to jewelry, nothing, perhaps, comes close to the classy simplicity that pearls exude. Other gemstones may be glitzier and have more complex features. Pearls are often just white or black, unblemished by other noises. It’s quiet, maybe, but nowhere near inferior. This is best exemplified by the luxurious signature Mikimoto pearl necklace. It’s a perfect glamour piece for a lady who doesn’t need to run after attention; it goes to her. The pearl captures the light and pulls it deep into the pearl’s core, creating a subdued brilliance that teases the eye. The light gleams quietly and low-key, yet it’s this little aspect that tickles the corner of your eyes and draws you to look in admiration at a Mikimoto pearl necklace, in most cases, longer than necessary.

Pearls are forever

Posted by Sylvans at 10:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

A pearl is easily one of the timeless elegant jewelry that’s always in fashion. Since Ancient Rome, pearl jewelry has been a sought-after piece and by the eighteenth century they have an appeal unique on their own. A pearl like a Mikimoto can stand against the most brilliant diamond or precious gold. In fact, it’s common to see celebrities walking down the red carpet on pearls. Interestingly, even a luxury pearl like Mikimoto can be used in casual outfits like jeans. The deep colors of a Mikimoto black south sea or Akoya pearl exude class and elegance not only on glamorous nights, but on everyday activities like working at the office or meeting a client. They are attractive without clamoring for attraction, as they are beautiful without even trying.

When to Wear Pearl?

Posted by Sylvans at 10:35:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

When do you wear pearl? The simple answer is anytime you want to exude elegance and simplicity. At the office, during a corporate event, in a cocktail party, a dinner date, during a casual weekend get together… pearls are surprisingly flexible as luxury jewelry. It pays to invest in a quality pearl like Mikimoto to ensure the pearls maintain their luster and allure even if you wear them every day. Here are some guidelines when wearing pearl. Generally, the older you are the better large pearls come across. Pendant pearls are less conservative compared with a necklace full of pearls. A long strand of pearl works better on a dress with a high neckline or when you’re wearing a blazer; conversely, a short pearl necklace is best on a plunging neckline that highlights the neck and shoulders. Likewise, white pearls work with any color, while multicolor pearls like Mikimoto’s are best with neutral colored dresses. Remember, pearls are meant to last when they’re quality made like a Mikimoto.

The Irony of pearl

Posted by Sylvans at 10:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

A pearl is a unique jewellery item that has its own mystique and charm apart from diamonds, gemstone, gold or silver. While other precious metals and stones are often given to flashing their glitziness, pearl jewellery is quiet and low-key without being a second rate. Its splendour is in its subtle brilliance, as if the wearer knows she doesn’t have to tell people about her style and sophistication; they already know. It’s the same air of confidence and quiet style you feel in a Mikimoto pearl necklace for instance. The necklace with a single pearl doesn’t say much; yet its simplicity that catches everyone’s attention. The brilliance is subdued, as if the light cannot escape a black hole in the pearl’s depth. Again, it’s this glimmer of light that you catch in the corner of your eye that makes pearl like Mikimoto a pure essence of luxury. It’s ironic. It’s pearl.

Pearly problem

Posted by Sylvans at 1:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

If you think buying pearl jewellery is a cinch, you have a big thing coming and you can "blame" Mikimoto. The Japanese pearl jeweller has transformed pearl jewelleries into a complicated art form and cultured a wide array of precious pearls. There is Akoya, a traditional pearl cherished for its brilliance and luster. The Black South Sea has a dazzling display of deep black that suits the most glamorous cocktail night. Conversely, the White South Sea has a subdued opaqueness to it that changes in subtle hues upon contact with different light tones. The Golden South Sea, meantime, reflects a rare, deep champagne-like hue. Of high interest is the Conch, a rare shape pink pearl that lends a soft femininity to the wearer. Mikimoto has more pearl lines, each one designed to impress the woman and, in your case maybe, confuse the man.

Living Dreams

Posted by Sylvans at 10:00:00 AM in Mikimoto (27)

In 1905, the young Kokichi Mikimoto once confided to the Meiji Emperor at the Ise Shrine: “I would like to adorn the necks of all women around the world with pearls.” He had then just perfected the world’s first spherical cultured pearls. At that time he had no idea how far this seemingly preposterous dream would take him or his name. A century and a score of years later, Kokichi’s vision is almost entirely fulfilled. The Mikimoto house of pearls is still the finest producer of in-house grown cultured pearls – the famous Akoya, South Sea pearls, black pearls and even Conch. The world-renowned label takes pride not only in its fine organic gems but also in its classic and contemporary designs of pearl decked jewelries like the stunning Milano Collection designed by famous Italian artist Giovanna Broggian at the turn of the century. Find the best classic or contemporary pearl jewelries among Mikimoto’s enchanting collections, and take part in the fulfilment of a daring century-old dream.
