To buy good quality south sea pearls
In Tokyo. I am aware of mikimoto
But does any of you know where else
I can purchase the pearls like any other jeweller
Or pearl dealer.
Please let me know. Would be great help.

Thanks

Hi! I am a major Mikimoto pearl fan and that is all I buy when it comes to pearls. Their pearls are gorgeous and the luster is high quality. Another brand for South Sea pearls is Paspaley. They specialize more in south seas pearls and not so much akoyas.

I have compared many pearl brands and Mikimoto has no equal in my opinion. They are expensive, but it is well worth the price. Even if you get A quality, it is better than 99% of the pearls out in the market.

Go to ginza district to have a look and you will know what you want. There is so much there for you to consider, mikimoto is the most expensive but tasaki and astral is also high reputable seller. Good luck with your shopping.

There is one SA in each big store in ginza could speak english which is a BIG plus since most of the time japanese barely speaks english (but they know it very well though).
