"The Enchanted Treasure of the Ocean"

Immerse yourself in the mystical realm of MIRA pearls, where each gemstone tells a story as old as time. Imagine the tantalizing depths of Tahiti, home of the enigmatic Black Pearl, around which lie the legends and lore of Tane, the god of harmony and beauty. Their shape and shine inspired Tane to create the stars. Also remember the ancient Chinese emperors, who revered pearls as symbols of wisdom and nobility. Every MIRA pearl is not just a piece of jewelry, but a fragment of history, a piece of the soul of the world.

What are South Sea pearls?

South Sea pearls are among the most sought-after and prestigious pearls in the world and are known for their exceptional size, shimmering luster and rich, silky colors. These pearls come from the large oyster Pinctada maxima and are farmed primarily in the warm, pristine waters of the South Seas, which include areas such as Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Myanmar.

Unique size

South Sea pearls are characterized by their impressive size, which can range from 9 mm to 20 mm in diameter, making them much larger than the average pearl. Their unique luster, a deep, radiant glow, is the result of the thick mother-of-pearl that forms in the warm waters of the South Seas. This thick nacre not only contributes to their remarkable luster but also ensures their longevity.

The colors of South Sea pearls are very different and range from classic white to silver to the rare and sought-after gold tones. The color variations depend largely on the type of oyster and the environment in which it is grown.

How we are redefining pearls

In our Zurich studio, MIRA redefines pearls and challenges the notion that they are only for older people. Our pearls are timeless treasures that can be passed down from generation to generation while still being modern. They give them a new touch that is suitable for everyone, regardless of age and gender. MIRA beads are universal and gender-independent and decorate the soul of today's people.


Harvesting South Sea pearls with MIRA is a careful and sustainable practice that ensures the preservation of both the marine ecosystem and the oysters themselves. The cultivation process is time-consuming and delicate, requiring years of care before a pearl can be harvested.

South Sea pearls embody the perfect blend of natural elegance and rarity, making them a sought-after possession and symbol of luxury and sophistication in the world of fine jewelry.

MIRA is committed to sustainability and fair trade right at the source. Working with local pearl farms in Indonesia, we ensure that every pearl is harvested with respect for the environment and our community. From the hands of Indonesian farmers to yours, every pearl is a promise of ethical elegance.

MIRA expands its horizons and also offers you the noble Akoya pearls from Japan, which are sourced directly from their breeders, and the mysterious black pearls from Tahiti-Polynesia, which are obtained in collaboration with the breeders in French Polynesia.
