K. Mikimoto invented the cultured pearl in 1893, and his spirit lives on in this Fifth Avenue shop. Cultured pearls—sometimes mixed with diamonds—are the store’s specialty.
As an alternative to the traditional engagement ring, this famed Japanese company posits a pearl as its signature ring’s centerpiece and embellishes it with diamonds or other gems (from $1,600).
