Stunning White Freshwater Keshi Pearls
Fully knotted on silk, this is a set of white cultured, freshwater Keshi pearls.
They have a silver 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 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 white Keshi pearls with an extraordinary silver surface lustre, each measuring approximately 10 - 15mms long. The necklace length is 56cms (22 inches) and can extend a further 2cms on the double loop toggle. There are 52 Keshi pearls, alternating with tiny 2mm white pearls.
The double loop toggle clasp is silver. To open, push the bar sideways through the loop and reverse to close; use one loop or two depending on the length required.
The necklace is sold with a matching pair of Keshi pearl drop earrings, on silver-plated hook-backs, for pierced ears.
