Our customers

Purchase

Working in cooperation with overseas bases established during our more than 150 years in the jewelry business, we are consistently able to obtain high quality loose gemstones from the world's top suppliers. Our buyers, who have spent years cultivating professional expertise, also provide us with a supply of loose gemstones directly from the point of origin using Imayo's own information network.

Creativity

With an affinity for traditional culture inspired by our Kyoto roots, we seek to create innovative designs that combine tradition with contemporary fashion. Starting from the initial planning stage, our designers work tirelessly to develop exciting new products.

Craftmanship

We also have a strong focus on craftsmanship, having started out as a one-man business.
While actively utilizing the latest technologies, we are determined not to forget the warmth of handmade craftsmanship. The smiles on our customers' faces when they take our jewelry in their hands are what drives us. In our workshop, we create truly beautiful jewelry that will stand the test of time, which we then deliver to customers all over the world.

Wholesale

We are engaged in a wide variety of activities, having created OEM products and original products for department stores and jewelry stores all over Japan, and having hosted our own Imayo Karyo-ten exhibitions.

Retail

Our products--including our original brands kagayoi and ICHAROI and our other independently developed products--are available at stores we operate as well as at other retail outlets.
