Keshi Tahitian pearls, 6-7mm, hand strung and knotted with 14ct yellow gold clasp.

Keishi pearls are the closest there is to a natural pearl, which are very rare today. The Japanese word means “seed pearl” or very small pearl but today these are found in larger sizes. The Keshi pearl comes into existence when the pearl oyster rejects the inserted nucleus but the pearling process continues. The name Keshi is only used for pearls coming from salt water pearl oysters.
