"CASMINE" looks like golden lace, which connects cultured pearls. We do this by our very unique hand crafting method. We don't use the usual method of stringing pearls. Instead, we use 18K gold chains and wires to link our pearls.

We never solder, glue, or bond our jewelry. We use our original method of linking our pearls by slow hand crafting, using our Japanese masters' excellent artistic skills.

In making our "CASMINE" necklaces we use from 80 to 400 hand crafted golden links. It takes 1 to 5 days to complete one necklace by hand. Our pearl necklaces can only be created by our very special, dedicated, and concentrated Japanese jeweler artists.

  

The necklaces which have more than 2 layers, have different inner and outer lengths. For that reason, pearls are precisely selected, at 0.2 mm pitch, in order to make the outer layer larger than the inner one. At the same time, the length (pitch) of the inner and outer chain is adjusted, so that the parallels of pearls look beautiful and natural when you wear them.
