Clasp: The Mikimoto clasp is engraved with the Mikimoto trademark, an outline of an Akoya oyster with the letter M inside. Also commonly referred to as the "M" in a clamshell or oystershell. Only Mikimoto uses this specific hallmark and has done so since they were first produced. No other marks have been used so be sure to look for this specific hallmark when purchasing Mikimoto pearl jewelry.

Source: Mikimoto America, brochures and personal interviews conducted with Mikimoto staff.
-----------------------------------------------
this is from the ebay buying guide - my miki pearls have the clasp with the clamshell - but my miki bracelet has a ball clasp with the word mikimoto because it is part of the breast cancer collection - so i am not sure about their statement that no other marks have been used. i have found the website pearl-guide to be extremely helpful in identifying miki pearls and fake miki's.

I have a feeling that it's Maruwa Pearls. I have one like it too and they are quite beautiful. JAL sells them.

Are pearls from Maruwa Company worth anything- I have a brooch with what look to be black pearls- can not find any info on Maruwa company?

I am looking at a 14K gold diamond ring that also has the "M", inside of a diamond shape.

Hello dear;


Please start a "New Topic" for this, because...well, this post is 4 years old....
