Mikimoto Private Sale

I have this friend Cynthia who is under the impression that Mikimoto "makes" the best pearls on earth. "Mikimoto has the best pearls," Cynthia asserts. "I can pick out a Mikimoto pearl from across the street." 

Just for the record, dear Cynthia, pearls --like diamonds --come from nature. Like diamonds, pearls are graded. Mikimoto happens to just use the highest quality. Either way, you will be excited to know that Mikimoto is having a private sale.

The sale is Thursday, June 19 from 10am to 7pm and Friday, June 20 from 10am and 3pm. 
680 Fifth Avenue, 4th Floor 
(between 53rd and 54th Streets)

Lots of rules. I hope you can remember them all.
  • Invitation only. Try to snag one from a person leaving or make nice with security. You can always use the "my friend is waiting for me inside" line.
  • Credit cards only
  • No exchanges or returns
  • No holds
  • No shipping
  • Admittance will be admitted by capacity.  There may be a wait.
  • All overcoats and large bags will have to be checked

Cynthia, good luck. Your opera length strand may be waiting...

Omg, that sounds utterly amazing. Too bad it's invite only and the tiny fact that I don't have it in my budget to Mikimoto right now :( I guess I'll just have to dig up my Mikimoto pearl necklace that I got for my 16th birthday. haha

Thank you SO MUCH Lila!!! I bought 3 Pearl in Motion bracelets and made them in to necklace! I am having so much fun playing with them now! You rock~

Totally, but while everyone else was getting a car, I demanded pearls. I don't think that's normal. But I feel like I just want something bigger and something black, because white pearls are just not my style these days.
