About keshi pearls

Origins
True keshi pearls are produced by the Japanese Akoya Oyster, found only in the Sea of Japan. Keshi pearls are unique and highly-prized because they are a rare by-product of the cultivation process and form without a nucleus (like typical pearls) over a period of around 7 years.

Lustre
Because keshi pearls consist entirely of nacre (and no nucleus), there is nothing to stop the reflection of light. This produces an incredible, enduring lustre.

Shape
Because keshi pearls form without a nucleus, each pearl is entirely unique and their shape is typically organic.

Value
Keshi pearls are very valuable. As they consist entirely of precious material (nacre), they are the only pearls to be valued by weight, like a gemstone.

Care
As with all pearl jewellery, keshi pearls should be stored away from other jewellery to prevent scratching and should not come in contact with chemicals, such as perfumes, hairspray or swimming pool water. Pearls should be gently cleaned after each wear with water and a soft pearl cloth. Pearls ‘sweat’, so to avoid your pearls drying out, they should be kept in a container that is soft and opened regularly for airflow.

Symbolism
Pearls are the official birthstones for June and the traditional gemstone for a 3rd or 30th wedding anniversary. Keshi pearls are said to strengthen trust in relationships. Pearls are also associated with the moon, purity, integrity and wisdom.
