Feelings towards pearls
"Handling exquisite pearls as gemstones"
Each pearl possesses unique qualities such as size, shape, imperfections, luster, and color, much like individuals. No two pearls are alike.
In order to send into the world pearls that have been nurtured with immense effort and affection by those involved in their production, we strive to recognize and enhance the charm and individuality of each pearl. We aim to bring forth their maximum value in suitable settings, transforming them into jewelry that evokes emotion and delivers happiness to people worldwide.
Corporate Philosophy and Policies
『Integrity, Challenge, Change』
Our corporate philosophy at Eiko Pearl is,『Integrity, Challenge, Change』.
We are committed to handling negotiations with all our valued clients with sincerity. Moreover, we are dedicated to approaching assigned tasks and business endeavors with integrity and providing sincere responses.
To handle a diverse range of pearls, we have actively sought out producers worldwide to establish partnerships with farmers. Additionally, we have participated in jewelry shows globally, including Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Shanghai, and Basel, Switzerland, to expand our sales network. Moving forward, we are committed to further expanding our business with the same adventurous spirit.
Since our establishment, the pearl industry has undergone various changes. These include mass deaths in pearl oysters due to red tide events, a significant reduction in Akoya pearl production resulting from mass mortality of spat in recent years, the growth in Asian markets, and the sharp drop in pearl prices following the 2008 Lehman Shock.
Particularly noteworthy was the suspension of in-person sales globally due to the widespread impact of the novel coronavirus in 2020, affecting industries across the board. In response to these challenges, we proactively adapted to the changing landscape. In 2020, amidst the global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, we developed an online trading app, creating an environment for online sales. By promptly adjusting to these changes, we sustained our business through the pandemic by selling pearls online to buyers worldwide.
We remain committed to adapting flexibly to the shifts in challenging times and will continue to expand our business in the future.
We were founded in 1963 by my father, Osamu Ogami, in Kobe. In 1978, we relocated to Tsu City, Mie Prefecture, where we have operated as a specialized pearl trading company ever since. Our range of pearls extends beyond Japanese-origin Akoya pearls to include pearls produced in the South Pacific, such as Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Tahiti. Importing cultured pearl from around the world, we apply Japan’s superior processing techniques to transform them into semi-finished or finished products, which are then exported globally.
As evident from our history, we have established local subsidiaries in Hong Kong, a key hub for Asian exports, and have participated in shows worldwide, including Basel, Switzerland, Singapore, Taiwan, and Shanghai, to promote and expand the sales of pearls.
The guiding principles of Eiko Pearls are ‘Integrity, Challenge, Change.’ We are committed to facing our customers and work with integrity, embracing new challenges, and adapting to the changes of the times. As a company, we aim to grow together with our employees. We sincerely appreciate your ongoing support.
