Company celebrating 40th anniversary; launches commemorative lines.
Fine pearl brand Yoko has been commissioned to create four unique high jewellery designs for the upcoming Pearl exhibition at the V&A.
The brand will make four of six special designs, dubbed masterpieces, to be shown as part of the Pearls exhibition which opens in the autumn. The news ties also into the 40th anniversary of the Hatton Garden-based company.
Yoko described its commission as a huge honour. The brand’s sales and marketing executive Mandy Namdar said 2013 marks an exciting year for the company.
She said: "We are very proud of our London heritage and fly the flag for British fine jewellery. We have met clients from Brazil, Russian and Kazakhstan at BaselWorld, with pink pearl jewellery proving to be very popular this year."
The brand launched its 40th anniversary commemorative collections at BaselWorld this week, teaming Australian and Indonesian South Sea, Tahitian and freshwater pearls with coloured gemstones and diamonds.
