Kawaii is a Japanese word meaning cute, charming or adorable. In the U.S.A. we can see this word come to life in Hello Kitty merchandise, Pokeman cards and Manga comics. In Japan, it’s pervasive. It’s seen on billboards, trains and planes. Check out this All Nippon Airways Boeing 747 with Pikachu emblazoned on the side. Some prefectures, banks and police precincts have their own adorable mascots. I followed the kawaii style into jewelry to see what cuteness I could find there. Here are some very sweet examples.
