Signifying wisdom, clarity, and loyalty, the pearl glows with a diffused inner light. It’s the only gem to come from a living creature – a natural prize as luminous as the full moon. While pearls can evoke the classic glamour of Hepburn and Chanel, their clean simplicity feels decidedly modern.
The Lunar ring places an 8.5 mm, BBB-grade Akoya pearl in perpetual balance between grace and strength, with a seamless band to secure the gem in place. We use Akoya pearls for their exceptional beauty and luster. Harvested in Hiroko’s native Japan, they also provide a meaningful connection to our mothers, grandmothers, and the incredible women who wore these strands and stones before us.
Designers Hiroko Kobayashi and Neil Prakash have practiced architecture at some of the world’s most respected firms, including Kengo Kuma & Associates and Nick Milkovich Architects Inc. with Arthur Erickson.
Since 2009, they have translated their modern aesthetic to the scale of the body, as well as the building site. Each piece of jewelry is a miniature study in architectural balance: considering light, space and form to exacting standards.
