Mikimoto Private Sale

June 17, 2008 by Lila Delilah

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…
