About the Bow Collection
Like a string tied around the finger, Mimi’s Bow necklace is a whimsical reminder of life’s special moments. Designed to collect or layer, each gold Bow necklace represents an important thought to be treasured. Fluid, feminine and wildly colorful, the Bow necklace is Mimi’s modern take on sentimentality. The Bow is a true representation of Mimi's highest level of hand craftsmanship. Due to its complex design, eight experts, including the designer, Cad technician, model maker, stone selection manager, jeweler, stone setter, polisher and quality control expert, worked tirelessly for twelve months to perfect its concept and development. From the beginning, Mimi challenged her team to build the most realistic, precious jewelry Bow in existence.
"If we are to build a bow," she declared, "let it be an authentic bow as if tied with a ribbon!"
To achieve the Bow's unique 3-dimensional and asymmetrical shape required hours of experimental work. Mimi's team of artisans stretched, tied and knotted a variety of ribbons in order to visualize and replicate the precise folds and knot of an exquisite bow. Once the specific dips and curvature details of the ribbon were selected, her jewelers began to play with clay molds to build and shape the final form. From there, the final wax mold solidified the design intended for production.
The mid, medium and large Bows, which feature diamonds set inside the return of the bow, are comprised of five separate components which are then carefully assembled like a puzzle by a skilled jeweler who seamlessly solders and connects each joint. The petite and small bows are are crafted from 2 parts.
At each intricate step of production, our quality control expert inspects the piece before it continues to the next step. This assures that the Mimi So standard of quality is met throughout production. After all the work is complete, a final inspection takes place ensuring the item is flawless and ready for our clients.
Depending on the size of the diamond Bow necklace and the amount of diamonds or gemstones required, one piece can take between 4-6 weeks to produce.
