It has been confirmed that Mikimoto will not be in Basel this year. The pearl Maison opted to unveil the latest and greatest jewel collection during private appointments held at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Geneva. This was timed to coincide with the SIHH show in January.


Mikimoto Marks Its 125th Year in the Pearl Fashion Business

The firm marked its 125th anniversary. The occasion was filled with an array of exciting pearl jewelry debuts.

Each jewel collection was headlined by Yaguruma. This is a line that takes motivation from an essential design originator, Kokichi Mikimoto. He introduced this acclaim at the 1937 World Exhibition in Paris.

A sash clip of the Obidome kimono which was executed in the Art Deco style was decorated with Akoya cultured pearls, caliber-cut sapphires and emeralds. This clearly boosted 12 interchangeable settings. Due to this, there was room for disassembling and reassembling of parts that completely formed different pieces such as the brooch or a hair ornament.

At the pearl jeweler Mikimoto archives, the Yaguruma Sash Clip lends the designs and structure of its circular centerpiece. This will be able to allow the formation of new pendants, a bracelet, a belt and the clasps of some classic pearl necklaces.

Some collections such as the Les Petales Place Vendome collection invoke the passionate cosmopolitan milieu of Paris. This collection is very simple and has the modern designs that have been inspired by rose petals floating to the ground at Vendome.

Pearl Jeweler Mikimoto: The Feminine Suite of Pearls

This is where Mikimoto opened a boutique immediately after the Paris exhibition. In this place, the diamond accented petals encircle with Akoya and South Sea cultured pearls. This brings out the feminine suite that consists of a pearl necklace, pearl rings and a pearl bracelet.

Geneva debuts have other one-of-a-kind pearl pieces. These pieces are set with spectacular diamond and colored gemstones and new luxury gifts. Photo frames are detailed in Akoya cultured pearls and diamond. The frames are thoughtfully designed in a lacework pattern and also they are in radial cut mother-of-pearl.
