History of Pearls

Pearls have been prized as jewels in many parts of the world since ancient times because of their beautiful luster that has earned them the nicknames such as “moon drops” and “mermaid’s tears.”There were also cases of them being taken as medicine due to their rarity.Pearl cultivation in Japan began in XNUMX, when Kokichi Mikimoto (XNUMX-XNUMX) discovered five semicircular pearls from Akoya oysters during an experiment.Since the invention of the Akoya shellfish cultivation method, it has developed mainly in Ago Bay, which gained fame as its birthplace.
