June Birthstone: Pearls
Sharing the spotlight with the lustrous pearl is Mikimoto, the oldest and foremost name in cultured pearls.
Mikimoto’s illustrious heritage began with founder Kokichi Mikimoto, who revolutionised the jewellery industry when he successfully created the first cultured pearl in 1893. Currently, the brand operates its own pearl farm on Mikimoto Pearl Island, where it also runs the world’s first pearl research laboratory.
To celebrate Pearl Month, Mikimoto unveils a campaign featuring its global brand ambassador Dilraba with some of its finest high jewellery creations. It also introduces the new Feather Collection with Akoya pearls, diamonds and feather motifs.
Wonder Woman’s Latest Conquest

The Israeli bombshell wears key designs from the jeweller’s Botanica: Blue Book 2022 high jewellery collection, including a dandelion-inspired diamond necklace that transforms into five unique designs, an orchid brooch, and a diamond and sapphire necklace that reminds us of thistles.
“Gal Gadot is more than a house ambassador. She epitomises the effortless glamour, sheer sophistication and sense of modernity that Blue Book represents,” says Alexandre Arnault, the brand’s executive vice president.
