These Magatama chocolates are designed to resemble the ancient Japanese beads of the same name and will appeal to fans of artisanal desserts. Launched by confection brands Sakaneya and Fumizekka Sanin, these sweets are not only ornate and colorful but are also deliciously indulgent.

Available in exotic flavors like yuzu citrus, strawberry, mikan, mandarin orange and sesame, these treats are also specially crafted to resemble real precious stones. For example, the Magatama chocolate collection's sesame flavor is crafted to resemble black onyx stone whole its mikan and mandarin orange option resembles a piece of realistic-looking orange calcite.

Dating back to 1000 B.C., Magatama stones are the inspiration behind these handcrafted chocolates that feature different packaging options -- from 3-piece pastel packs to larger boxes that offer a more diverse variety of flavors.
