Mikimoto is well known for its use of top quality Akoya cultured pearls and strict quality control. For this reason, Mikimoto pearls are extremely popular among jewelry collectors. All the pearls have great luster, an even round shape, and a consistent peachy pink overtone throughout that are consistent with the highest quality standards of Miki pearls. And it's the second largest size of miki pearls that we have ever carried.
