Japanese pearls were appealed successfully to Prime ministers in G7 Summit Japan

Pearl Lapel Pin brooch were gaved from Abe Shinzo, prime minister of Japan to other prime ministers on 1st day in G7 Summit.

Special lapel pin for the Ise-shima G7 Summit

The pearls in this pin symbolize harmony between humanity and nature. In Shima, we strive to preserve this harmony for future generations.

3mm-5mm Akoya pearls cultivated at Ago Bay in Mie Prefecture

This pin is not offered as mere decoration. It symbolizes the intricate relationship of humankind and the natural world. For several thousand years, the people of Shima-city worked in harmony with the sea, as fishing played a central role in our way of life. In the last century, industrialization has presented challenges to this harmony, as it has in many other parts of the world. The Satoumi Project is striving to restore the balance with nature that has been so meaningful and nourishing to Shima-City for centuries, and to pass this balance on to future generations.

The pearls in this pin represent one of the fruits of this balance. Without a diverse and thriving marine ecosystem, their beauty would not be possible. They hopes that G7 leaders will accept and wear this pin. In doing so, you will support us in advocating the cultivation and preservation of our relationship with the natural world.

New Addition to “M/G TASAKI” with the Theme “INTENSITY”

TASAKI (TASAKI & Co., Ltd.; Kobe Headquarter Office: 6-3-2 Minatojima Nakamachi, Chuo-ku, Kobe; Tokyo Headquarter Office: 5-7-5 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo; Board Director & CEO: Toshikazu
TAJIMA) will start sales of new items in the “M/G TASAKI” line from June 7th (Tue), 2016.
With the theme “INTENSITY”, the London-based Head Designer, Melanie Georgacopoulos, has come up with three innovative designs, representing the “powerful beauty” common to women and pearls, which draw out new appeal from pearls.
“PYRAMID PEARLS” is pearl jewellery overflowing with modern luxe, with a three-dimensional stacked design. A variety of items of yellow gold with pearls and diamonds are deployed to give you a sense of TASAKI’s high craftsmanship, including a ring inspired by geometric shapes and the works of Victor Vasarely, the standard bearer of op art (artistic works that creates special optical illusions), and a necklace that strings together three-dimensional motifs.
“CUBIC  PEARL”  takes  “harbouring  a  big  secret”  as  its  motif  and  is  a  design  featuring  pearls
nestling a tiny cube. The shining yellow gold cube shaking inside the hollow formed in the pearls themselves is also reminiscent of a pearl being protected inside the shell.
Moreover,  “FLORAL  SLICED”,  which  brings  new  ideas  to  the  signature  design  “SLICED”,  is  a design full of organic beauty. The cross sections of sliced pearls are decorated with yellow-gold petals, creating a design that represents the admiration for nature.
