It doesn’t matter if you’re headed out the door in a dress to impress or a classic tee-and-jeans combo for a day about town. Pearls offer a style versatility that make them the unsung heroes of any metropolitan wardrobe, thanks to their tactile allure and easy grace. Instantly elevating your OOTD with class and sophistication, they work bigger wonders when teamed with glittering diamonds for an even more scintillating play of lights. So the next time you’re looking for pearls to jazz up your day, turn to a trusted name – one that has 128 years of history and heritage like Mikimoto, for example.

Creators of the world’s first cultured pearls, Mikimoto has won pearl-lovers across the globe with its contemporary designs (not to mention guaranteed quality) that range from haute red-carpet creations to simpler everyday pieces that turn heads – just like those found in its latest collections, for example

Dripping with chic minimalism and urban edge, Mikimoto’s New Year range sees the gilded charm of golden South Sea cultured pearls on clean diamond-studded lines of white and yellow gold that make a statement in no-fuss glamour. Available in a modernist range of earrings, pendant necklaces and bangle, these bijou work as well layered with your favourite jewellery or by themselves for an effortless vibe. For a more monochromatic take, there’s white and black South Sea cultured pearls to be enjoyed with bangles that also come sans diamonds if you so prefer.

Or, if it’s a more darling look that you’re after, the Sweets range is what you should be looking at. Bearing sensuous curves inspired by mouth-watering hard candies and jelly beans, this delectable range of petite baubles in white and pink gold adds a touch of fun elegance to your ensemble – especially when piled on with the white gold and diamond ribbon pendant with dangling pearls that go as perfectly under the collar of a crisp white shirt or over a round-neck t-shirt.

Modern, chic and effortlessly sophisticated, Mikimoto proves once again why it’s the go-to name for designs that show off the versatility of pearls in all their contemporary glory. To find out more, visit Mikimoto.sg or pop over to one of its boutiques at Marina Bay Sands or Takashimaya today.
