About us

Makko believes that jewelry wasn't just meant for show, but something that could empower and protect the wearer. Makko Jewelry accomplishes this in a very unique and artistic way using Japanese kanji characters, gemstones and distinctive shapes, to match each individual's spirit in the form of jewelry. Every piece of jewelry created by company founder Ms. Tokuyama has a special meaning or message; some convey fortune and well-being whiles others may refer to peace and tranquility.
For example, some jewelry pieces incorporate the power of "yoji-juku-go," four kanji characters that together make up one meaning. Yoji-juku-go has been used for hundreds, maybe thousands of years, as an intellectual form of expression.Makko allows a person to convey his or her feelings and beliefs through yoji-jyuku-go in artful jewelry, allowing the wearer to inspire and express themselves through the power of traditional Japanese kanji.
Other pieces from Makko utilize gemstones and symbolic shapes, presented in a truly artful manner, to express the wearer's emotions and inspirations. Gemstones originate deep from the earth, taking years to form; therefore, it's believed that they possess special natural energy. Because of this, Makko Jewelry only uses natural gemstones in its products, not manmade ones. And, you will see familiar symbols and shapes in the Makko Jewelry line. Whether you're in search for self-motivation or want to convey to others your feelings and beliefs, Makko Jewerly has the right piece for you.
Makko hopes that our products can make a difference in your life and contribute to your overall well-being and success.
