The Pearl Exporting Company specializes in Japanese Akoya saltwater keshi pearls, and are involved in every aspect of the business. We have been in business since 1962 and are known for the quality of our product and beauty of our designs. We drill the pearls, have them strung using the traditional process, and incorporate them in our innovative jewelry designs. We provide strands, loose as well as innovative keshi jewelry.
Through our new designs with South Sea and Tahitian pearls, we feel we have again captured the essence of beauty in a unique, fresh way. Our pieces range from the very simple, using only a few keshi or South Sea pearls, to complex works of art using over 100,000 pearls. At Pearl Exporting, we carefully hand-pick each pearl to ensure its quality for our customers.
HISTORY OF THE PEARL EXPORTING COMPANY
In 1956, Mr. Satish Shah, a pearl dealer from India, came to Japan in search of pearls. He soon fell in love with Japanese Akoya keshi, and opened the doors of Pearl Exporting Japan in 1962. Keshi became the main line in 1966 when he exported a record 150,000 momme, which was more than 60% of the annual keshi production. Since then, Pearl Exporting has become internationally known as the leading keshi expert. Realizing that keshi would become scarce due to mechanization of the culturing process Mr. Shah began buying all of the available keshi in the market that he could from the late 1980's onward. In 1995, we started a line of keshi pearl jewelry, which includes necklaces, rings and earrings. The year 2001 showed the opening of our first office in the United States, where a new millennium for innovative design was introduced. Keshi jewelry is the ultimate luxury, and currently we have branded a "keshi only" line of jewelry
