GREEN BOX #2 :: 11/09/2018

The second green box of 2018 is out! This week we are featuring Mikimoto, the legendary brand of pearl and inventor of the pearl culturing process. Dedicated to protecting and propagating stocks of native Akoya oysters depleted by over-harvesting of natural pearls, Kokichi Mikimoto became fascinated with the possibility of producing cultured pearls and in the late 1800’s, Mr. Mikimoto figured it all out and the rest is history. The piece of the week that the box finder will receive is a 7.5mm x 7mm A Quality pearl bracelet with 18k yellow gold clasp retailing for $1840. Also the box will only be hidden in the CSRA.

If you come into Windsor and try on a piece of Mikimoto and you’ll get to see a clue a day in advance.
