Owner, Yuko Daigen began her jewelry career as a sales person in Japan, over the course of years she learned basic jewelry essentials. She then moved to San Francisco and studied the visual arts extensively. These experiences inspired her to travel to Spain and France to gain a deeper understanding of the art. Up on returning to San Francisco, she returned to the jewelry industry this time in management. Taking advantage of her background, she traveled to Japan to study quality, sources, and trends of Japanese pearls. In 2009 she started her line from her Rockridge studio in Oakland. Two years later in 2011, she opened up her current shop, "Pearl Lounge" just one block  from Union Square in San Francisco. In 2016 She began traveling frequently to Tahiti to establish connections with the many pearl farms scattered throughout the archipelago. Today to create her wearable art, she handpicks only the finest quality pearls from the hundred of thousands produced every year from Japan and Tahiti.
