Yobitsugi Mother of Pearl Earrings


These earrings were designed in collaboration with Kohei Kirimoto and creative director George Root. George broke the mother of pearl and Kohei finished the piece with Kintsugi. The mother of pearl was broken and pieces were used to create the earrings through Yobitsugi and Kintsugi. The Kintsugi lines are the gold lines featured on the earrings. Yobitsugi is a kind of patchwork and uses different materials to create or bring together the art piece. In this case, they used different pieces of the mother of pearl, gold, and diamonds to form the design.

Yobitsugi is the art of connecting - "Yobi" signifies "calling in" or "creating", while "Tsugi" symbolizes "connecting". The Yobitsugi earrings feature pieces of the mother of pearl patchworked in the design, 18kt solid gold, and round pave diamonds set into a Kintsugi line. These stunning earrings are a work of art and one of a kind. You complete the design.

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”
