PETIT PEARL STORY

 In 1858 Yokohama, Japan, the first Kontor was built by a few men from Hong Kong, who worked as interpretors for the English men.
Inside this rather shabby looking wooden building, Japanese Natural pearls were being traded. At this time, only a handful of people had the chance to own this precious jewel from the sea.
Pearl cultivation became the norm and various types of pearls have become a high end jewelry for formal wear. 156 years later, the financial crisis and global warming affected the Pearl cultivation hard and it became difficult to maintain the mass production.
In 2014, Hong Kong, a city that has become the largest market for Pearl trading, an optimist who loves Chinese food and also an expert of Pearls, and a woman who loves fashion, stood up to save the endangered market and decided to create an innovative style to pearls. By these two Japanese innovators, Petit Pearl has become a beginning of a new chapter.
“Our mission is to have fun and dress everyone in the World fashionably with Pearls”
