Peach Pink Freshwater Keshi Pearls


Fully knotted on silk, this is a set of peach pink cultured, freshwater Keshi pearls.  

They have a gold overtone and excellent lustre (the surface shine).   These freshwater pearls originate from China, or Japan.  Keshi is a Japanese word also meaning "poppy"; it is used in Japanese for all pearls that grow without a nucleus.  


Originally, Keshi pearls referred to those pearls formed when a bead nucleus was rejected.  Most pink freshwater Keshi pearls are now Chinese in production. They are non-nucleated pearls, so they are pure nacre and natural shapes, which makes them unusual and very lustrous.  


This necklace is a string of peach pink Keshi pearls with an extraordinary surface lustre, each measuring approximately 6 - 10mms long.  The necklace length is 54cms (21.5 inches) and has 60 Keshi pearls, alternating with tiny2- 3mm peach pink freshwater pearl spacers.  


The etched toggle clasp is silver gilt.  To open, push the bar sideways through the loop and reverse to close. 

The necklace is sold with a matching pair of Keshi pearl drop earrings, on gold-plated hook-backs, for pierced ears.
