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, bringing beauty to what was once destruction. 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 is 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. The Kintsugi Ring Ⅰ is inspired by the free-flowing nature of Kintsugi cracks. This ring can be worn alone or layered; it will transform your finger into an art piece.
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”
