Damas Jewellery, the Middle East’s International house of jewellery design, has once again set to raise the bar for luxury fine jewellery. Introducing the enchanting creations of Mikimoto in an exclusive and private session with Sotaro Yamaguchi, General Manager of the brand, on history, artisanry, and the elements of fine pearl jewellery in Bayt Damas. The pristine Mikimoto pearl symbolizes everlasting love, loyalty, and wisdom, capturing the hearts of high jewellery aficionados across the region.
Since 1893, unlocking the secret of culturing pearls, the title “The Pearl King” was given to Kokichi Mikimoto, who dedicated his life in the pursuit of lustrous perfection. A visionary, entrepreneur and alchemist of the sea, his quest for serene beauty and mission to adorn the necks of all women around the world with pearls, has earned Mikimoto the reputation as Japan's representative jeweller.
Intricately designed with skill and grace, Mikimoto celebrates its heritage as the pioneer of cultured pearls with an unparalleled commitment and dedication to quality. The quality of a pearl is determined by several criteria, including its size, shape, color, lustre, and thickness of the nacre. Only Akoya cultured pearls with the highest quality and lustre can be bestowed with the title of a “Mikimoto Pearl”.
Each collection tells its own story, weaving a narrative of subtle luxury and understated charm. Inspired by the beautiful city of love, “Les Pétales Place Vendôme”, is an enchanting collection designed to accentuate the inner beauty of each independent woman with 18-karat white gold diamond encrusted rose petals and white south sea pearls. “Jeux de Rubans” is inspired by ribbons with the graceful creations resembling calm waves mirrored in their soft curves. The “Pearls in Motion” collection is versatile, playful, and functional, offering an infinite number of styling possibilities.
Bringing Japan to the Middle East, Mikimoto’s sophisticated designs will now be available — exclusively under the Bayt Damas portfolio — to the Gulf’s community of elite luxury enthusiasts.
Mikimoto is available at selected Damas boutiques and Bayt Damas.
