These Mikimoto set are very beautiful and what I would consider simply understated elegance. Am so happy I found them.

This piece is beautiful, and the seller is SO knowledgeable about her pearls -- lived in Japan and sent me amazing links about Akoya and Mikimoto pearls, has a blog and was an absolute pleasure to interact with. HIGHLY recommended!
