Deep Purple and Grey Keshi Pearl Bracelet

$ 58.00 USD

We love a keshi pearl. The lovely rainbow iridescent shimmer of a pearl but with a "cornflake like" structure.  The keshis in this bracelet are medium size deep purple, white, and grey with faceted teardrop crystals. Bracelet measures approximately 7 1/2 -8 inches and closes with a magnetic clasp.  Always grasp as close to the magnetic clasp as you can rather than pulling on the bracelet strand!

What is a Keshi Pearl?

Pronounced like the word “Mesh” with an eeeeee on the end. A Japanese word also meaning poppy. What we see now in the market is a non-nucleated pearl that can range from paper thin to a nice fat thickness. I refer to the thin ones as having a “corn flake” look about them and the fat ones as a “souffle” pearl. Yet another style is the “stick pearl”. The Keshi pearl is a really lovely and versatile pearl to use in a jewelry design. They have all the attributes of a round pearl including the iridescent sheen that we expect to see in a pearl of any kind. They can be dyed to a multitude of different colors, and the different drilling techniques, as with all pearls, give them a very unique flair for any design.
