Kintsugi Duo Pearl Earring


The Kintsugi Duo Pearl Earring is an elegant and MILAMORE take on the classic pearl earring with 18kt yellow gold Kintsugi features. The top pearl is white Akoya pearl and the back closure pearl is gold or black South Sea pearl. Having a pearl on both sides of the ear lobe creates a unique look that we love. A gold Kintsugi line covers the perimeter of the pearl, adding a unique geometry to the earring whether you are admiring it from the front or the side. Like to wear your earrings mismatched? So do we! Style this with another MILAMORE earring or if you want a pair, add two!

Kintsugi is one of the traditional crafts of Japan and the ancient Japanese restoration method for ceramics. Broken ceramics would be made whole again by tracing over cracks with lacquer & gold powder, bringing beauty to what was once broken. Everyone has emotional scars - and it’s something we feel you should embrace. In Kintsugi we learn that ceramics are destined to crack. This is a metaphor for how wisdom and beauty are birthed from our own lived imperfections. The Kintsugi collection is a tribute to honor this. The cracks create unique shapes and tell a unique story captured by MILAMORE.

Handcrafted in Japan

The rich culture and heritage of Japan is Milamore’s biggest source of inspiration. Designed in New York and handcrafted in Japan, Milamore blends the ancient Japanese art of jewelry making with modern design. Each piece is made with the highest quality materials—18 karat gold and precious stones—and is created entirely by hand by multi-generational families of artisans in Japan.

Our ateliers are located in Tokyo and Yamanashi Prefecture in the heart of Japan near the foothills of Mount Fuji, and have deep ties to our Co-Founder’s family business. The first atelier opened its doors as a watchmaking shop in Tokyo’s Asakusa district during the 1920s and then evolved into a jewelry-making atelier after World War I. Our community of highly skilled artisans produce heritage art by combining techniques that have been passed down for generations with modern-day technology. They are masters of their craft, and together we share a commitment to quality and passion for innovation.
Our jewelry undergoes a sophisticated 10-step process, starting with a hand-sketch design, followed by a wax carving and casting, and finished with the hand-setting of gemstones. We source the highest quality materials, and our suppliers are vetted to meet the highest of ethical standards. Our diamonds are conflict-free; Our emeralds, which come from Colombia and Brazil, are responsibly sourced. Through powerful, modern design and exceptional craftsmanship, each piece becomes one-of-a-kind and holds a deeper meaning to those who wear it.
Our artisans treat each piece of Milamore fine jewelry like a work of art. Attention to detail is in our DNA. This is what it means to be “Handcrafted in Japan”
