Keshi Pearls – $495

Nacre (pronounced nay-ker) is what gives pearls their luster. In your typical pearls, the more layers of nacre the more lustrous the pearl. However, unlike most pearls, Keshi pearls have no nucleus and are ALL nacre! Therefore, as you can see, a remarkably lustrous pearl is the result. With a play of iridescent colors moving within each pearl.

These highly reflective pearls subtly mirror the colors of whatever you’re wearing. So, they’ll go well with most all of your clothing. Very versatile, adorn them with a cocktail dress or with your favorite jeans and a button-down shirt. Professionally strung in an endless 30-inch long strand. Long enough to put on over your head and it can be worn doubled.
