What I love about the new generation of pearls is the diversity of shapes and colors. Pearls have come a long way since Mikimoto created the first cultured pearl in the 1880s on his oyster farm in Japan. To this day, cultured pearls are still being farmed and processes have been developed to create incredibly vivid colors and unique shapes. This cultured pearl collection, with all of its extraordinary shapes and colors, is a fresh look at a classic accessory. All of our fabulous pearl pieces are made in the USA.
