Our Enduring Legacy
Two large, stately pearls decorated by highly refined craftsmanship. These pearls were cultured on Ainoshima Island, Fukuoka Prefecture. Ainoshima pearls are characterized by a delicate yet thick layer of nacre that gives the pearl a brilliant luster. To pass the luminous sheen of the pearl on to the next generation, MIKIMOTO has been cultivating pearls in Ainoshima since 2007 and continues working to preserve Ainoshima's marine environment. The pearls inherit the spirit and passion of MIKIMOTO, the originator of cultured pearls.
