Japanese fine jeweler Mikimoto is most known for its use of pearls, having previously used the precious material in both its COMME des GARÇONS collaborations, and now it has given the pearl a new look by the way of its “PASSIONOIR” collection.

Inspired by a chemical reaction that further reflects on the subtle beauty of a pearl and power of the color black, “PASSIONOIR” comprises everything from earrings and cuffs to bracelets and necklaces that each feature a black finish, with the majority being made from black South Sea pearls set in black rhodium-plated silver.

While pieces such as the black zig-zag earcuff may just be made from silver, it’s items such as the link necklace or the multicolored cultured pearl bracelet that appear as standards among the collection. Here, the aforementioned necklace combines a series of links before coming together at the middle to hold a single black pearl in place, while the bracelet combines a variety of chrome-like pearls with a Mikimoto-branded stopper, making for a chunky yet delicate piece.

Small pearl earrings also make a subtle statement despite their $4,900 USD price tag, while the largest necklace with a diamond clasp — which sees pearls the entire way around the necklace before meeting a black diamond clasp — retails for $23,900 USD, making it the most expensive piece in the “PASSIONOIR” range.

Take a look at the collection above, and shop everything on Mikimoto’s website now.
