Tahitian Keshi pearls are delicate gems that make immensely versatile accessories because they are adventurous enough to complete a relaxed outfit, and yet subtle and elegant to be suited with a cocktail dress or business attire.
These pearls are ocean water pearls that grow accidentally during the pearl culturing process, thus are quite rare to find in large quantities.
Cultured pearls grow around a nucleus that is introduced manually into the oysters, in the case of Tahitian keshi pearls, it is the oyster Pinctada margaritifera that rejects that foreign body (can be a piece of shell, or any bead) yet still creates a Keshi pearl which is totally made of nacre.
Their irregular shape and controversial nature make them very unique!
