Once an individual experiences the metallic rainbow beauty of Tahitian Pearls – it’s almost impossible to not fall madly in love. Tahitian Pearls while smaller in size than South Sea Pearls offer an incredible spectrum of gorgeous colors paired with incredible overtones to choose from. It’s no wonder these little gems have become so popular. Even for those who love Tahitian Pearls, many are most likely unfamiliar with what a Tahitian Keshi Pearl is.

Many people upon hearing the term “Keshi” assume that Keshi means natural. This is a faulty misconception. For a pearl to earn the classification of a “natural” pearl there must be no human intervention. On today’s pearl market, 99.9% of all pearls are considered to be “cultured” or “farmed” pearls. In fact, it is illegal to hunt wild oysters for the intent of selling their assumed pearl. If someone ever tells you that they are selling “natural” pearls – it’s a pretty sure guess that they are misleading you.

Of the three types of saltwater pearls: Akoya, Tahitian and South Sea, each will have a subtype of a Keshi variety. The term Keshi ultimately describes how the pearl was formed, and sets it apart from other pearls in a harvest. Pearls are created by something irritating the oyster. As a result, the oyster puts up a barrier between itself and the irritant to protect itself. This barrier is nacre – and is what ultimately forms a pearl. Pearl farmers adhere to a process called nucleation. A small mother of pearl bead (the nucleus) is inserted into the oyster. Over time, the oyster will secrete layers of nacre around the nucleus – ultimately resulting in a pearl. In order to ensure a pearl is forming, each oyster is scanned via x-ray. On infrequent occasions, an oyster will reject a nucleus. Upon determining this via x-ray, another nucleus is inserted and the process is started over again.

On rare occasions, an oyster will reject the nucleus – but still continue to deposit layers of nacre. As a result, a pearl is formed that does not have a nucleus – but is made of 100% nacre. These gorgeous pearls have incredible shapes, colors, textures and are a true find. These are called Keshi Pearls.
