Mikimoto x Hello Kitty
120 years ago, Kokichi Mikimoto created the first cultured pearl in the world. His quest for perfection and his love for these wonders that come from the sea are the basis for the creation of the maison Mikimoto, today the largest producer of cultured pearls and one of the world’s leading designers of fine jewelry. To celebrate this anniversary, the Japanese house is collaborating with our favorite mascot, Hello Kitty. The cat with the mythical bow is also celebrating her 40th anniversary this year. Gozaimasu!
