Exploring the Allure of Keshi Pearls
By JonJiang

Keshi pearls, a type of seawater nucellar pearl, from round pearls to shaped pearls, this is the path of advancement for most pearl aficionados, when they read the language of the baroque pearl, the exploration of the pearl will go to a new level.

The word "Keshi" is derived from the Japanese word for tiny particles. Most Keshi pearls have a baroque shape, and they are accidentally created during the pearl farming process in seawater oysters. Sometimes the oyster rejects the bead implant, but the particles of outer coat membrane tissue attached to the surface of the bead remain in the body, and these outer coat membrane tissues continue to stimulate the oyster to produce the nacreous layer, resulting in the marvelous and intriguing Keshi pearls that we see.

Keshi pearls are small, usually only a few millimeters in size (common sizes are 1-8 millimeters), and are variable in shape, giving them a natural and spontaneous aesthetic. They do not have a nucleus and the whole body consists of layers of pearls with thick layers. Because they are accidentally grown during the culturing process, they are produced in relatively small quantities and are limited in size and shape, so Keshi pearl jewelry can seldom be mass-produced.

Keshi can be categorized by type. Akoya Nucleated Keshi pearls are characterized by being very small, measuring approximately 1-3 millimeters in size, as tiny as a grain of rice. Tahitian black Keshi pearls are very colorful. Australian White Keshi Pearls are nurtured by healthy females in pristine waters for years and years, and rise up to be more luminous than ordinary round beads. Every corner of the gold Keshi pearl shines with the sun's luster, a silky luster that seems to shine through and bring a warm, brilliant feeling to our hearts.

The value of Keshi pearls is determined by their production. In terms of variety, Golden Keshi pearls > Australian White Keshi pearls > Black Keshi pearls, and in terms of quality, rounded and smooth Keshi pearls are superior to oddly shaped Keshi pearls. Regarding color, Intense Gold Keshi Pearls are superior to Medium/Light Gold Keshi Pearls, while Aurora Keshi Pearls are superior to Strong Light Keshi Pearls and Weak Light Keshi Pearls. In addition, large size Keshi pearls are more valuable than small size Keshi pearls. Of course, Keshi pearls are not as expensive as round seawater pearls for the same amount of luster. However, the beauty of Keshi pearls lies in their infinite possibilities, the variety of combinations they can be found in, and the fact that they are sometimes multiplied in value by the ingenuity of the designer.

In short, Keshi pearls not only bring a diversity of shapes and colors, but also demonstrate their infinite creativity. Each Keshi pearl is a unique work of art, and both pearl lovers and designers can find endless beauty and creativity in the world of Keshi pearls.
