2.ABOUT

Hi everyone, nice to meet you!

My name is Keiko NISHINO.

I’m the CEO, creator and designer of GRACE PEARLS.

I created this brand of pearl jewelry, for which I select the pearls, design and craft the jewelry myself.

I was born on Shima Peninsula in the Mie prefecture, cradle of pearl farming. 

My grandfather was running a pearl store in Ehime Prefecture. My childhood was bathed in pearls. 

After spending 12 years as a teachers, I became drawn to pearls once again, and as a result I created GRACE PEARLS in 2019.

GRACE PEARLS is a brand that convey all my emotions.

[Love of my hometown]

I was born in Shima but grew up in Chiba.

I spent a lot of time during the Summer and New Year holidays in Shima and Ehime, building a lot of fond memories with my family. So for me Shima is more than just a birthplace, it’s my hometown.

When I thought about starting my own business « I want my work to benefit my hometown » was the first thing that came to mind.  It may be small but I’m happy to contribute to the local industry.

(My business is registered with Mie Prefecture.)

[Love of the sea]

The sea holds a very special place in my life, having swum in it or gone on boat trips since I was a child. During my years as a teacher, my favorite hobby was scuba diving in a lot of different seas around the world.

Sometimes I find the sea awe-inspiring. I discovered the world from under the sea and it made me understand how small mankind is amongst living species.

It reinforced my love toward nature and all living creatures.

Pearls can only grow in a clean environment. Mankind must be thankful for the blessings of the sea, and this must be passed on the next generations. 

(We are making donations to an association protecting Mie Prefecture’s Sea.)

[Love of beautiful things]

When I was a child I always wore my favorite pieces of clothing. I didn’t need a lot of different things and I took really great care of my belongings.

I love vintage clothes, used books, antiquities and old kimonos. I love objects with a story. When I encounter something appealing to my heart, it’s like I found a treasure.

As a person I’m committed to things, so as a creator it’s really important that all my customers are satisfied.

▶︎When ordering a jewel you can choose different materials for the accessory parts. 

▶︎Pearls are presented on photo so you can choose the pearl you like the most. 

These are the feelings and philosophy that led me to open this store.

If you have any further requests or questions, please feel free to contact me.
