    Those are very classy pieces of modern jewellery from Mikimoto, you're lucky to own such beautiful items Elenayak!

    Thank you, I am very fond of these pieces. Mikimoto also had exactly the same settings but with blue saphires instead of diamonds, they were sold out very fast. My favorite piece is however SS white pearl with fire opal immitating splash of water. Now I cannot get hold of the picture, but it was on the coverpage of their spring catalogue and website. I had an opportumity to examine the piece and to try it on in their New York store, it was the most spectacular piece I ever seen, mostly because of the shimering translucent blue-ish subtle colors of the opal. The price was astronomical, I do not recall if it was 50 or 100K, it was irrelevant to me. I think that opals and pearls go together very well and both have very individual characteristics but I do not see this combination very often.

    So that one is just $72,000.
    Wonder how much "Price available upon request" equates to for this one, also off the Mikimoto website?

    Very elegant items, and Mikimoto pieces really work together as a suite.

    A great strategy sales-wise, once you have one, you need another!

    Mikimoto pearls are my favorite. Unfortunately they are out of my pricerange, so I just admire my mother's pearls. Here are her two Mikimotos (one is Blue Lagoon, 7mm, 18 inch with bracelet, the other is the real deal, I think it was 36" and 8.5-9mm- might be one size up... it has been about ten years since we bought them).
