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 and is created entirely by hand by multi-generational families of artisans in Japan.
Milamore's co-founder is Azusa Yamato. Azusa’s family are respected jewelry crafters in fine jewelry in Japan. They utilize the highest quality of ethically sourced stones and 18kt gold to bring Milamore and the sentiments we infuse into our designs, to you. 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 Azusa’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 artisans treat each piece of Milamore fine jewelry like a masterpiece. Attention to detail is in our DNA. This is what it means to be “Handcrafted in Japan.”
Founded on the Japanese ideal of 'Omotenashi', an ideal of a wholehearted approach to hospitality, every piece is made and presented with the utmost attention, care and consideration.
