Keshi pearls (also called reborn, cornflake pearls or poppy seed pearls) occur when cultured oysters spit out the nucleus implanted by the pearl growers as the base for a cultured pearl. Without having that central core, the oyster creates a flat, irregular shaped pearl of pure nacre. Because they are pure nacre, Keshi pearl have an amazing lustre and shine. Not only are they available in their natural colours, they can also be dyed to create some stunning finishes.
This necklace is made up of large pieces of Keshi pearl tinted in shimmering coppers and bronzes. This process safely adds a layer of brilliant colour to the natural lustre of the pearls creating a spectacular necklace. The necklace is hand strung on a double string and knotted between each pearl for a perfect result. It is finished with a chunky sterling silver clasp.
