When I read about this weeks challenge – my thoughts went directly back to this photo; my Mikimoto pearl earrings. A gift of “love” or maybe more a gift of affection from a very special man in my life, given to me in Hong Kong. He haven’t had his own post – yet!!!!! *smile
Mikimoto is in my eyes the most beautiful pearls in the world – visit their shop in Tokyo many years ago and I have never seen jewelries like that in my live. Talk about serious eye-candy. Please visit their stunningly beautiful website; Sophisticated Elegance.
Mikimoto Kōkichi (御木本 幸吉?, (1858 – 1954) was a Japanese entrepreneur who is credited with creating the first cultured pearl and subsequently starting the pearl industry with the establishment of his luxury pearl company Mikimoto. (text; en.wikipedia.org)
Rumors say the Mikimoto was declared insane, when he started to create the cultured pearl. From madness has many geniuses raise!!!
“A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.”
