Eiji Uemura was born in Minamiise Town, Mie Prefecture, and inherited the family business as the third generation of Uemura Pearl Farming, which had continued from his grandfather's generation.
Later, he felt new possibilities for pearls and started designing jewelry.
In addition to wearing it on special occasions, we are conscious of the style that goes well with casual fashion and create it with innovative ideas.
We are also focusing on interior pearls that can be enjoyed even when not in use, and unique works that become a part of art when removed are attracting attention.
Pearls are fun! We want to entertain people all over the world through our pearl jewelry.
EIJI will push forward with the aim of further evolution.
