hello. I am Rie Miyazawa, a jeweler.
"When I turn 20, my mother will buy me a round white pearl."
……With the promotion of such a major jewelry brand, the “white and round thing” has become established as the entrance to pearls.
Do you use white round pearls?
But isn't that white round thing really hard to use?
The length is subtly long, and the balance with fashion is subtle.
The whiteness stands out too much and it becomes full of "formal feeling".
It's sweat resistant and can't be worn in the summer.
It's hard to use everyday and stays in the box for a long time.
Perhaps it has become a safe "tool" level if you have one.
It's only served at ceremonial occasions... something like that.
I can't count how many times I've heard such a disappointing story (tears).
pearls are life
The pearls lined up in the store are enshrined as "products".
But unlike diamond and stone jewelry, pearls are actually “creatures” that grow in the sea!
The first pearl I saw as a jeweler was from a farm in Uwajima, Ehime.
An 80-centimeter long necklace, called baroque, with a rough, not round shape and a light gray color.
When I saw that pearl, even though I was still inexperienced, I thought, "This pearl is really iridescent! It's so pretty!"
After that, I visited the farm many times, listened to the manager of the farm, and went out to sea on a boat to open the shells on the sea and watch the pearls being born. I came.
It was glossy, strong, and completely different from the pearls you see in stores.
It was then that my perspective on Pearl changed.
I want to wear this "strength" and "avant-garde" instead of wearing it like a "good girl"! that's what I thought.
With that in mind, I wore the first gray baroque pearl necklace I bought for 300 out of 365 days a year.
I did a lot of research to match it with every outfit.
in the morning, at noon, and at night. Both in Japan and overseas.
I didn't get bored at all because the expression changes completely depending on how the light hits it.
Plus, it brightens your complexion!
Many times I experienced the pleasure of having someone stare at my necklace (pretty good feeling).
It's not cheap because it's made with care, but it's already been depreciated quite early (laughs).
My pearls are thick and robust enough to withstand sweat and aging.
That's why, even now, 20 years later, it's still shining so beautifully that customers say, "I want that."
Also, strangely, once you get used to using pearls, you will be able to use white round pearls on a regular basis.
You will become a person who looks good in jewelry.
The value of Japanese pearls lies in their iridescent luster.
Japanese pearls are absolutely different from large overseas pearls, cheap freshwater pearls from China, and imitation cotton pearls.
That's how the rainbow comes out.
Akoya oysters from Japan create a beautiful rainbow color that other pearls do not have because of the difference in water temperature between spring, summer, autumn and winter in Japan.
It's beautiful and forever rainbow.
It is truly a gift from God.
In fact, pearls are not only white and round.
Japanese pearls also come in a variety of colors and shapes.
There are white round ones, grays and greens, sometimes baroque that looks purple, and even yellow.
These powerful pearls are great for jeans, leather jackets, the office, and on dates.
When you're in your 40s, use genuine Japanese pearls with iridescent colors instead of foreign ones or fake pearls, and use them to "upgrade" your fashion.
Because upgrading your fashion means upgrading yourself.
