This beautifully and masterfully crafted piece is one of three items in the John Hardy Legends Collection.

He wants there to be jewelry that represents every heart, every desire. Every storyteller can find a piece that speaks to them.

Trying to find a befitting gift for a woman you love (mother, wife, girlfriend or a female relative) may be a bit of a problem especially if they are taste-specific. One thing is for sure though: jewelry sets a good mood for appreciation any day, any time. To achieve this, one needs to find a suitable jeweler who is original and has a unique product. Mikimoto has received numerous praises globally for having adorable and unique products that a woman can find hard to resist.
The company was founded by Kokichi Mikimoto who nurtured world’s first cultured beads and later went ahead and established his first Black South Sea pearl in 1914, which gave the pearl industry a new dimension. He ensures that each pearl harvested is so unique that it is termed as its own ‘fingerprint.' Certain qualities are considered when assessing superiority of the beads:
1. Luster, quantity of brightness a jewel replicates from both its exterior luminosity and the profound replication of its inner brightness. Only a bright spark bares the Mikimoto name.
2. Outward perfection (fewer exterior imperfections denote a higher quality, more valuable pearl) is incredibly important.
3. Shape (most pearls are rounded, but with Mikimoto, unique shapes like buttons, teardrop, oval and baroque are also familiar) is also a factor in choosing superior pearls.
4. Color (this mostly depends on color of oyster that produces them). High quality pearls have awe-inspiring colors.
5. Size (pearls are measured in millimeters, therefore size has absolutely nothing to do with its quality).
Mikimoto consistently gives us the most amazing pearl jewelry. Visit with us at Keller and George and let us show you these pieces up close and personal!
The Herend Baby elephant figurine is a pure example of the workmanship of Herend. It is small and cute, standing at only 7.6 cm and sitting on his hind legs, with gold accents in 24k gold and fishnet or fishscale pattern, the signature of Herend, and glazed in various colours that compliment the white in shades like light blue or black. The Herend baby elephant figurine is a hand painted sign of a definitive innocent and meek animal and with the gold hand painted on the elephants feet and trunk each figurine has an individual and unique look.
It is the quality of Herend which brings this figurine and others like it to life. Herend puts a lot of emphasis on its beautiful craftsmanship and has for many years. People wine and dine on the porcelain dish designs made by Herend. Queen Victoria of England certainly did, and the tradition was passed through the British Royal Family to Princess Diana.
Herend's rich legacy of craftsmanship has lived for many years after its founding in 1839, before Mor Fischer became the director and took it in a new direction. That direction has made Herend what it is today, and it now reaches various generations and has reached acclaim with its masterful techniques of crafting beautiful porcelain dubbed "White gold."
Thanks to Fischer, unique and visionary dinnerware replacement pieces for the various royal families of Europe were created in order to complement the porcelain patterns made in Germany and in the far east. But dinnerware pieces were not just what Fischer had in mind for Herend, though the 1851 commission made by Queen Victoria helped to shape Herend's future.
