KESHI PEARLS

Keshi pearls are a shape rather than a type of pearl as is commonly believed. They are formed when the oyster rejects and spits out the implanted nucleus before the culturing process is complete, or the implanted mantle tissue fractures and forms separate pearl sacs without nuclei. These pearl sacs eventually produce pearls without a nucleus. Keshi pearls can form in either saltwater or freshwater mollusks.

They are generally small in size and because there was no nucleus to guide the ultimate shaping of the pearl, their shapes vary broadly. Keshi pearls come in a wide variety of colours and tend to have high lustre and even orient. This is due to their solid-nacre composition - the implanted nucleus of the pearl has been expelled by the mollusk resulting in 100% nacre. This gives it an especially lustrous and shimmering surface quality. Most keshi pearls, in fact, have a greater lustre than even the best-quality cultured pearls. Keshi Pearls are rare nowadays and becoming more expensive.

This is because pearl farmers are now x-raying oysters to determine whether or not the nucleus has been expelled. When a nucleus-free oyster is found they are re-nucleated before a keshi has time to form. This practice has made  keshi pearls much harder to find than was once the case.
