“Keshi” is a Japanese term which means poppy seeds. A Keshi pearl is a non-beaded pearl which is formed by accident when the oyster rejects and spits out the implanted nucleus before the culturing process is complete. They are generally small and their shapes vary widely. Due to their solid nacre composition, they tend to have a high lustre.
Sold as temporary strung 38-40cm 15 inches (approx) strands.
PLEASE NOTE: The beading hole sizes for pearls is traditionally much smaller than for gemstone/semiprecious beads as the most popular traditional stringing method is to use silk thread. Holes are approx. between 0.3-0.5mm.
