Mikimoto Pearl Necklace
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
Happenstance is a romantic notion when it comes to meeting the love of your life. But a mollusk awaiting just the right bit of something so that it can form a pearl is a random affair that can take a long time. Kudos to Mikimoto--the son of a noodle maker-- who believed that every woman should have a strand of pearls. He started the first cultured pearl farm in 1888 to expedite the process and to make them more accessible. If you don't already have a strand, or if you want more (think Coco Chanel), this 18 3/4-inch long and lustrous beauty, finished with a fancy 18K gold pearl-accented clasp, is calling your name. Signed Mikimoto.
