Each of Mikimoto's cultured pearl strands are a work of art born from the mystery of the sea. Creation of these earrings requires incredible skill, judgment and craftsmanship. The magnificent satiny luster of these fantastic white pearls is produced by the silver-lipped South Sea oyster. Their subdued opalescent appearance subtly changes under different light conditions, making a constant marvel to behold.
