The story behind keshi pearls is quite interesting (Keshi is Poppy seed in Japanese). These lustrous black pearls are actually made by accident when the mollusk rejects the growing nucleus and spits it out. Because they are made entirely of nacre, which gives pearls their glow, keshi pearls have a very bright lustre. And because they are a bi-product of pearl production, they are a rare commodity.
So these black tahitian keshi pearls are a singular treat and definitely an indulgence, but worth every penny. Set with silk textured sterling silver.
