Tahitian Keshi Pearl Stud Earrings
Large Tahitian Keshi Pearls in 9 carat yellow gold setting. 8-10mm pearls.
Keshi can occur as a by-product of culturing another pearl, or completely naturally - it's impossible to tell the difference. Unlike 'cultured' pearls, Keshi do not have a nucleus and are instead 100% nacre so have a very high lustre. There is usually a large degree of variance in the shape of keshi pearls.
