Alas, it’s not too soon to start thinking about Christmas. If there’s a pearl lover in your life or if you’d like to leave a subtle hint for someone, Mikimoto has put together a Christmas guide to help choose the season’s most festive pearl jewelry. The Flower Lace necklace with creamy Akoya cultured pearls interlaced with diamond flower motifs is equally evocative of snowflakes or a starry night. For a warmer mood, the Dandelion collection uses rose gold to offset its diamonds and pearls. All pieces come gift wrapped in blue packaging with a holiday red bow and are available from Mikimoto, Bond Street, and Harrods.
