Ever since their inception in 1954, Tasaki has strived to produce quality and elegant pieces of pearl and diamond jewelry. As Japan’s only house to own their own pearl farm, Tasaki is able to produce pristine, beautiful pearls, in an ethical and sustainable manner.
Their pieces started out in that classic, tradition pearl jewelry way, but with the many collaborations Tasaki has worked on, they have been able to modernize their pieces and widen their audience. After collaborating for year with Melanie Georgiacopoulos, in 2017, Tasaki announced that fashion designer Prabal Gurung would become the brand’s new global creative director. This collaboration has proven to be a success, with Prabal giving the brand a modern update. Prabal is inspired by Surrealism, dreams, the modern girl and asymmetrical features.
In his first collection, Tasaki Atelier Surrealism, we can see many of these elements. The Waterfall necklace is comprised of gorgeous, white South Sea Pearls cascading down one side of the neck, while the other side is much shorter, with diamonds only. The Moulin double finger ring is such a cool and unique piece of jewelry, something you wouldn’t expect from a high end pearl brand. The Akoya Pearls seem to effortlessly float off to the side, while the pink sapphire or diamond stem connects the two bands themself.
While Tasaki’s main business is with pearls, they also sell fine quality diamond jewelry. As a sightholder with De Beers, they work with top quality diamonds only. In another collaboration, this one with the premier Ritz Paris Hotel, Tasaki was able to highlight their diamond jewelry. Dentelle Diamonds works to resemble the traditional lace and embroideries that has been used to decorate the Ritz for decades. The necklace and earrings in this collection are finely crafted with such high detail, it truly looks like lace.
Tasaki has proven over the years, that while they are a traditional pearl and diamond fine jewelry house, they are not afraid to break from that tradition. Their collaborations have allowed them to showcase a varied and unique set of collections, while always using their quality materials.
